Newspaper executive Peter Rosengren, 42, of Batavia, Illinois, drowned March 28, 2021, after helping to rescue a 9-year-old boy from drowning in rough water of the Gulf of Mexico off of Miramar Beach, Florida. The boy was carried away from shore into deep water. Rosengren swam to the boy, but they were separated by rough waves and Rosengren lost consciousness. Others, using safety equipment, ultimately rescued the boy and Rosengren, who was unresponsive. The boy recovered after being treated at a hospital for swallowing water. Attempts to revive Rosengren were unsuccessful, as he had drowned.
