Coast Guard Saves Northern Michigan Kayaker From Dangerous Waves

Posted: Updated:

High winds and big waves made for a dangerous boat ride today.

And one Northern Michigan kayaker got sucked into the mess.

The Coast Guard Air Station in Traverse City has been busy with rescues on Lake Michigan all week, and today was no different.

While they were heading out to a rescue this morning, they spotted a kayaker waving his paddle in the air for help.

They say he was holding on to his kayak tightly until crews arrived.

The Coast Guard says to always wear a life jacket when you're out on the water.

Waves are going to continue to grow this weekend, be safe and take precautions.
