RACINE — Racine County and city leaders are looking for solutions after three people including a 10-year-old girl had to be pulled from Lake Michigan in recent days.

"Anytime we have children die in a community, it really rocks the emotions of all of us, especially when there's senseless deaths that could've been prevented," said Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling during a press briefing Tuesday.

Over the weekend, 10-year-old Eisha Figuereo Colon, known as Naomi, drowned at Zoo Beach. Moments later, 17-year-old Yaadwinder Singh was pulled from the water at North Beach and later died at a hospital.

Singh was a student at the Oak Creek-Franklin Joint School District. The school district released a statement saying:

"It is with heavy hearts that our OCFSD community mourns the tragic loss of OCHS student Yaadwinder Singh. Our sincerest condolences and sympathy go out to the families and friends affected by this tragedy. Members of our Student Services Team will be on hand to offer any needed emotional support to our students and staff.”
