Kalamazoo County Drain Commissioner William French has suffered a stroke and is hospitalized in Miami in a coma, said a local attorney who has represented French.
Attorney Jim Boerigter said French suffered the stroke last Friday. It apparently occurred when he was scuba diving.
"He's been hospitalized for a few days,'' Boerigter said. ``He was in a coma, and the last we know, he was still in a coma.''
