Chippewa County Water Rescue

Posted: Updated:

We have another rescue to tell you about, this one in Chippewa county.

The water rescue happened last night on Lake Superior about 15 miles west of Bay Mills.

A sergeant with the Bay Mills Police Department tells 9&10 News a man was setting nets for smelt when he lost his balance and went overboard, wearing full waders.

That's when another man, Josh Floyd, swam out to help.

Another man involved in the rescue, Bugs Leblanc, followed shortly after in his boat.
