A Medina man drowned Saturday evening after pushing a young girl to safety in the waters of Bay Village's Huntington Beach.

Peter Radke, 43, was a father of four and attending a birthday party with his kids. He went missing around 6 p.m. after swimming out to assist the girl. He pushed her from rough waters, but never made it back himself. Rescue crews spent four hours searching before they located his body.

The Radke family provided News Channel 5 a statement:

Words cannot express the profound sorrow we feel over the death of our beloved Pete. He was dedicated to serving God and anyone in need. While we never expected to lose him so soon, we take comfort in knowing Pete’s final moments were spent saving the life of another. Peter Todd Radke, devoted husband and father of four, would have had it no other way.
