A family's prayers were answered after a heavy rip current almost killed a teenage boy. Today the Cadillac family is recovering from the traumatic experience. Blake Ford nearly drowned in Frankford while swimming in Lake Michigan. The 14-year old was released from the hospital a few days ago and is making a quick recovery. The body of a Northern Michigan Marine killed in the line of duty arrived home today. Sergeant Jason Calo died in combat last Sunday while serving in Afghanistan. He joined the Marines in 2006, just a year after his graduation from Mancelona High School. This was Calo's second tour of duty overseas. Hundreds turned out and lined the streets in Mancelona to pay their respects.
