PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Two men have been rescued from Lake Michigan after they were caught in a rip current while swimming.
The Ottawa County sheriff’s office says the 34-year-old and 32-year-old men were at Holland State Park in western Michigan’s Park Township early Sunday evening when they were swept into deeper water.
A jet ski operator was able to get one of the men to a pier where bystanders began cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
He was taken to a hospital and was listed in serious condition.
Another jet ski operator was able to take the second man to a beach where he was evaluated by paramedics. He was not hospitalized.
