Coast Guard Rescues Man From Lake Michigan

INDIANA HARBOR, Ind. — The Coast Guard rescued one person and a good samaritan rescued two after their small boat submerged near Indiana Harbor at approximately 3:00 p.m. today.

A boat crew from Station Calumet Harbor and a flight crew from Coast Guard Air Facility Waukegan were diverted from a training mission to assist Sean Malone after he swam to the breakwall in the harbor.

Good samaritan, Chuck Weiss, assisted the other two people in the water to safety onboard his 25-foot pleasure craft.

The Coast Guard rescue helicopter hoisted Malone from the breakwall to the helicopter, then transferred him to the Station Calumet Harbor 41-foot small boat. The Coast Guard and the good samaritan then transferred the three men to shore at the East Chicago Marina.
