MARQUETTE (AP) – Authorities rescued three adults and six children from Partridge Island in Lake Superior who had been on the water in a 12-foot boat.
The U.S. Coast Guard says the boat was “beset by weather” on Wednesday afternoon and they got a call for help via cell phone.
A crew from Coast Guard Station Marquette and rescuers from the Marquette County Sheriff’s Department responded. A Coast Guard rescuer swam to the beach and helped the nine onto a sheriff’s department boat, and they were transferred to the Coast Guard boat.
No injuries were reported. All nine were transported to Coast Guard Station Marquette.
