SHEPHERD, Mich. — A mid-Michigan couple whose 4-year-old son drowned in a pond has donated a sonar device to police to use in similar emergencies.
John and Rachel Kenny say they bought the device with money remaining from a GoFundMe account. The AquaEye can scan two acres of water in five minutes.
Their son, Spencer, fell through ice and drowned in a pond last December in Isabella County.
The Shepherd Tri Township Fire Department says the outcome might have been different with the device, which can identify bodies, especially in murky water.
