Man dies trying to rescue someone in Mirror Lake

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (WCAX) A man died in a North Country lake Monday while trying to rescue someone from the water.

It happened at about 11 a.m. on Mirror Lake.

Police say Colin Plumadore, 55, of Saranac, went to help a paddleboarder who had fallen into the lake.

The county coroner said Plumadore apparently overexerted himself and fell into the water himself.

There will be an autopsy Tuesday to determine whether Plumadore drowned or if he suffered another medical event before he went into the water.
