Children Rescued from Lake Erie

Five children – ages 6 to 12 – had to be rescued from the Sunset Bay area of Lake Erie Saturday afternoon.

The crew of a sheriff's department Lake Erie Patrol Boat heard people calling from the water at about 4:30, then saw the children clinging to an overturned windsurfer about 200 yards offshore.

The crew of the patrol boat plucked the children out of the water and took all but one of them to shore. The fifth child was taken to shore by a person on a Jet-ski.

Ambulances were waiting on shore, but none of the children was hurt.

Sheriff's deputies say they were all wearing properly fitted personal floatation devices.
