Two Rescued From Lake Michigan

Two people were rescued from Lake Michigan off South Haven on Tuesday after they ran into some trouble while kayaking. South Haven Area Emergency Services tells us responders were dispatched to Packard Park around 2 p.m. The distressed kayakers were spotted by SHAES personnel from shore as they were being driven further out on the lake by steady winds. A SHAES responder commandeered a jet ski and headed out about a mile to help the kayakers. One person was in the water, and both were wearing life jackets. The SHAES fireboat arrived on scene and brought the kayakers back to shore. A Coast Guard helicopter arrived as the rescue was being completed. Neither kayaker was injured.
