25 year old drowns in Port Austin Harbor Break Wall Gap

Posted: Updated:
HURON COUNTY (WJRT) - (07/06/14) - The holiday weekend ended tragically for a family in Huron County.

The Sheriffs Department says two brothers tried swimming across Port Austin Harbor Saturday night, but only one of them made it.

Selmir Mahmutovic, 23 of Hamtramck, made it across, but the strong currents exhausted 25-year-old Selim Mahmutovic and he sunk below the surface. A dive team found his body and performed CPR, but it was too late.

"Unfortunately, tragedy of such is no stranger to the Port Austin Break Wall. Regardless of what swimming enthusiast may debate, we strongly discourage diving and or swimming from the break wall's gap," said the Huron County sheriff.
