Careful on the Ice

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — A 47-year old woman was rescued by Coast Guard Station Grand Haven and the local police department around 9:45 a.m. in Lake Michigan about a half mile south of Station Grand Haven.

The Coast Guard and the police pulled her from the ice with a lifering, and they transported her to the hospital.

A good samaritan witnessed the victim fall through the ice and dialed 911.

The Coast Guard urges eveyone venturing on the ice to exercise extreme caution as ice conditions change rapidly due to weather.
