A western Racine County man is hospitalized in serious condition after diving into shallow water at a Kenosha County lake. The Sheriff’s Department says 22-year old Jeremy Riens is being treated for spinal injuries at Burlington Memorial Hospital after diving into just under 2- feet of water in Lake Benedict. His girlfriend discovered him not breathing after he’d been in the water about a minute. Reports indicate Riens had consumed several beers prior to the pair deciding to go skinny dipping. The incident happened at a home where Riens was doing some work for friends.
