ISLAND, Mich. (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued two kayakers from Lake
Michigan near South Manitou Island.
The Coast Guard
says a Traverse City-based rescue helicopter was called about 6 p.m. Sunday
to assist in the search for two kayakers thought to be between South Manitou
Island and Sleeping Bear Dunes along Michiganís northwestern Lower
passengers on a boat rescued three kayakers near Manitou Island after the
kayakers were too fatigued to complete their journey. The kayakers reported
two additional members from their group missing. The crew on the helicopter
found them about 6:30 p.m.
One person was
hanging onto a capsized kayak while the other was still in a kayak. Both
kayakers were hoisted into the helicopter.
The kayaker who was
in the water had symptoms of hypothermia.
