We now know the name of the man who drowned in a pond in eastern McCook County Thursday.
Jeremy Gilmore, who was 24, died after he jumped into a farm pond south of Lake Vermillion.
There were reports that Jeremy jumped in after the one of his dogs that he was training at the time.
The vegetation was thick and it was hard for rescue crews to retrieve Gilmore. A helicopter was called in, but was later called off when the rescue mission turned into a recovery mission.
KDLT talked to Jeremy’s father about his son Friday.
Gary Gilmore said, “He was a great kid, but what parent wouldn't say that. He graduated, played football, and was 24-years-old; a good all-around kid.”
The pond was reportedly around 15 feet deep.
