Coast Guard Stayed Busy Over Holiday Weekend
The Coast Guard stayed busy on the Great Lakes over the holiday weekend, saving 8 lives, and helping dozens of other people.
One incident included a cell phone conversation with a 13-year-old girl who led crews to a grounded pontoon boat, near Grand Haven.
15 people were on board; 13 of them were deaf, and four lacked medicine for medical conditions.
The Coast Guard shuttled passengers to shore, three at a time.
No one was hurt.
The Coast Guard reminds boaters to check all of your equipment before leaving the dock.
