Kandiyohi County authorities have identified a 70-year-old man who drowned in Lake Florida north of Willmar as James Toth, of rural Spicer. Law enforcement was informed that a person had been found in the water at a home on the lake at around 4:30pm Wednesday. The responding deputy arrived to find people performing CPR on the man, who had been found in the water by relatives. Toth was pronounced dead at Rice Memorial Hospital.
