Fire Department officials say the first man was found unresponsive in Lake Monona around 7:50 a.m. Sunday. The second man was found unresponsive in the water about an hour later.

A Fire Department spokeswoman tells the Wisconsin State Journal it's possible both men may have suffered a medical emergency that caused them to go under water.

She says there is no indication that the two incidents were related.
