Boater helps rescue toddler in Lake Michigan


(ABC) – A boater helped rescue a toddler who drifted away on an inflatable duck raft on Lake Michigan in northwest Indiana this week.

A woman had two kids on an inflatable.

One fell off and the woman grabbed the kid, but the other drifted out of her reach far from shore.

The mother shouted for help.

Eventually, a motorboat came to the rescue.

This isn’t the first time an inflatable has drifted out to sea.

An eight-year-old was dragged out into an Ohio lake on an inflatable unicorn earlier this year.
