U.S. Coast Guard Rescues Four Boys from Raft
The U.S. Coast Guard rescued four boys clinging to a tube after it went adrift in Lake Michigan. Rescuers think a rip current pushed them a half mile from shore. A helicopter was dispatched but crews on the water were able to rescue the boys in less than ten minutes. It happened around 4:30p.m. Thursday night at the Frankfort Beach. None of the boys were hurt. The Coast Guard says, if you get caught in a rip current while swimming, you should swim parallel to shore until you get free and can swim back in. However, they say the boys did the right thing by staying on the raft and not trying to swim back to shore. 9 and 10's Kyle Mitchell and Photojournalist Eli Gardiner have more on the rescue.
