Man thought dead describes ordeal in Muskegon River


See WZZM13

Searchers were so convinced a swimmer had drowned in the Muskegon River that officers and grief counselors notified his family.

But Keith Stever of Muskegon is not dead, and he and his family say they’re disappointed and sad police and deputies didn’t spend more time searching for him.

“They left me for dead,” Stever said. “They gave her a teddy bear to comfort her,” he said of his daughter.

“And a half later I crawl out of the woods on my own.”
