New Munich man dies on Lake Sylvia

By Diane Leukam
The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office has released the name of a man that died in a boating accident on Lake Sylvia in Melrose Township on Sunday. Dale Urban Steinemann, 47 of New Munich, passed away after the boat he was operating flipped onto its side.
At 2:15 p.m. Sunday, a woman reported she and other witnesses heard the sound of a boat clearing the water. According to the Stearns County Sheriff’s report, “when they looked out onto the lake they saw a speed boat on its side and watched as an occupant was thrown from the boat.”
The witnesses responded to the scene and pulled two juveniles, a 10-year-old male and a 7-year-old male, from the water. The boys were not injured and were later transferred to CentraCare-Melrose for observation. The boys were the sons of Steinemann’s girlfriend.
