Boater rescues toddler on giant inflatable duck on Lake Michigan

Taking a dip in Lake Michigan is a summertime treat for many young ones at Washington Park Beach in Michigan City, Indiana.

But there were heart-stopping moments on the water this week.

“As parents you need to watch carefully your children and be attentive,” said parent Bernie Morgan.

A woman had her two children on an inflatable duck.

    Right people at right place at right time, people who can react. Good job.

    I live in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. We locals see tourists head for the water with these devices and we mutter, Goodbye. If you tell them they won’t listen and some even get angry. Same as they ignore warnings regarding our massive shore breaks. When in doubt, don’t go out. Never, ever turn your back to the sea.

      Brighteyes, I used to co-own a small RV Park in Waldport, OR. and having miles of beaches I would tell newbys to watch the ocean and never turn your back too and be very careful swimming as the water is cold and we would get gnarly rip tides. If caught in one don’t struggle and the rip will carry you down the shore line eventually back to the beach. Damn dumb fluck people would still get caught and you could hear the rescue siren going and ya knew. The same they would ignore you or get pissed for saying something.

    The first dude there was a paddleboarder.

    He kept the kid safe until the boater got there.

    That wasn’t a giant inflatable duck. Who left the kid alone on it to begin with? The film showed everything at quite a distance, it looked like the infant was alone on the duck far from the shore. Was everyone else doing meth?

Play nice.
