PESHTIGO - A Green Bay man drowned over the weekend while swimming with two others.  

Authorities said 20-year-old Michael Broeffle went underwater, while he was in the Peshtigo River flowage near the Caldron Falls Dam.  He disappeared Saturday afternoon.  The dam's owner, the Wisconsin Public Service utility, reduced the water level in an effort to find Two-Rivers-Broeffle.  Rescue divers found the victim's body on Saturday night.
