Life Rings Getting Use And Working In St. Joseph

The life rings at Silver Beach in St. Joseph are working, according to Berrien County Commissioner Jeanette Leahey. At this week's County Commission meeting Leahey said a 19-year old from the Chicago area, after jumping off the South Pier, was saved Monday when his father threw two rings into the waters of Lake Michigan.



She says by the time emergency crews got on scene, the father and son were putting the rings back on their hangers. The ring system cost the County $4,000.



Leahey says the "tool works," and it's ultimately a good thing Berrien County went through with the purchase.
