SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) – The U.S. Coast Guard has rescued a 3-year-old Sheboygan boy who drifted onto Lake Michigan on a pool float.The father of Kayden Lee says the boy was at the lake with his mother and three girls when he was blown away from shore about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. A bystander called 911 after members of the group were unable to retrieve the boy.
Wind pushed the boy and the inflatable dolphin he was riding about 200 yards from shore.
Marcus Evans, chief of Coast Guard Station Sheboygan, says five crew members launched a 25-foot rescue boat within a minute of the 911 call. They found the boy straddling the pool toy and clinging to its handles.
The boy was pulled from the lake unhurt.
