Men drowned during work break
The two young men had been doing construction work at a beachfront home.
By Patrick MALONEY, and Sharon HO, Free Press Reporters
Rondeau -- A day after two men drowned in Lake Erie's choppy waters, reminders of the failed rescue attempts still were scattered along the shoreline yesterday.
Packaging for resuscitators and defibrillator patches were among medical debris left in the sand where rescuers tried Thursday evening to save two Chatham-Kent men, both weak swimmers, who spent 30 minutes lost in the lake near Rondeau Provincial Park.
The double drowning raised the London region's death toll from water mishaps to seven since the start of June.
After working all day on a beachfront home, construction workers John MARTENS, 26, of Chatham, and Jacob KLASSEN, 23, of nearby Louisville -- related by marriage -- entered the lake.
Rescue crews were called soon after, but the two were pronounced dead at a Chatham hospital.
A third construction worker escaped to call for help.
Despite the double drowning, area residents said water conditions Thursday appeared anything but deadly.
"(MARTENS and KLASSEN) were down in what I consider the shallow area," said Tom TOWNSEND, who witnessed much of the rescue attempt.
"(It) was a nice day -- there was an undertow, but not what I consider dangerous," TOWNSEND added.
He said he was impressed with the rescue efforts, which included police officers, firefighters and two search boats.
The water around Rondeau Provincial Park is generally calm, said area business owner Lori O'SHAY/SHEA.
"You just don't think about it," she said.
"I was totally shocked. When something like this happens, you certainly do think of (the potential dangers)."
The owner of The Stone Men, a Ridgetown construction company that employed KLASSEN and MARTENS, declined comment.
Though the number of drownings in the region this season seems high, one expert said seven deaths in one month isn't uncommon.
"Drownings peak in the summer and cluster around weekends -- especially long weekends," said Ed BEAN of the Livesaving Society of Canada.
Other Area Water Deaths
- July 5: Patrick Darrell GRAY/GREY, 34, dies after a diving injury in Trout Lake in Innerkip.
- July 3: Adam MUSIALKAEWACZ, 15, of Hamilton, drowns near Cape Croker.
- July 2: Tyler REID, 6, from Bluewater, drowns at Rotary Beach in Goderich.
- June 25: James DRABICK, 22, of Caledonia, drowns in Trout Lake.
- June 4: John WATSON, 43, of Parkhill, dies after his canoe capsizes at Parkhill Conservation Area.

Family mourns crash victim
By Joe BELANGER, Free Press Reporter, Mon., December 26, 2005
Willy KLASSEN was the kind of young man who could put a smile on anyone's face.
Loved by all who knew him, the 20-year-old's passions in life included snowboarding, soccer, cars, Friends and family -- the simple pleasures learned growing up in a close-knit, hard-working family of 10 children.
Those people whose lives Klassen brightened celebrated Christmas with only his memory.
The East Elgin secondary school graduate was killed instantly Friday when the car he was in went out of control on Elgin Road just north of Aylmer and slammed into a tree after sideswiping another car it was trying to pass.
"You couldn't ask for a better friend," said Reuben WIEBE, who suffered a broken thumb and a concussion in the crash, of which he has no memory.
"He'd give you just about anything you'd ask for."
The driver of the 1997 BMW, KLASSEN's pal Dan FRIESEN, 24, suffered a broken collarbone and leg.
Police say speed was a factor.
The three were on their way to visit KLASSEN's brother, Henry, 22, a volunteer with the Malahide fire department.
When the alarm sounded, Henry was among the rescue workers who raced to the scene only to discover the victim was his brother.
"I found out when I got there," said Henry in an interview Christmas Eve.
As other firefighters worked to free his brother, Henry helped load WIEBE and FRIESEN into ambulances.
"You just do what you've gotta do," said Henry. "It doesn't really hit you until you sit down later and think about it."
Henry said yesterday his family is coping with the tragedy, surrounded by Friends.
Henry, whose parents, Frank and Susan, have 10 children between the ages of 13 and 30, lost not only a brother, but a buddy.
"He was a very happy guy and everybody just loved him," Henry said of his truck-driver brother, who lived in Malahide Township.
The youngest KLASSEN child, 13-year-old David, mourned the older brother he adored by writing a poem, Someone Always Has to Fall, its poignant words showing his struggle to understand the loss:
"It doesn't matter what the size
Whether it be large, small, or none at all
Always someone has to fall
You'll cry and cry but the pain is still there.
You'll have agony that no one can compare.
But yet it's true
That someone always has to fall
No matter who it is at all."
Today, Friends and family are to gather at the H.A. Kebbel Funeral Home on Talbot Street East in Aylmer for visitation from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The funeral is at 2 p.m. tomorrow at EMMC Church in Summers Corners. Interment is at Aylmer Cemetery.
