(Michigan City, IN) - Three children were rescued from Lake Michigan in Michigan City yesterday.
The conditions were rough, but the children ages 9, 10, and 11 went in the water anyway and got caught in a rip current.
Authorities said five lifeguards went in and pulled the children back to shore.
According to the fire department, the lifeguards responded after noticing the children struggling in the water and hearing calls for help.
Officials said that lifeguards had rescued 14 people from the water at Washington Park this season.
