Two Recovering After Kayak Capsizes In Lake Michigan

Two women are recovering after their kayak capsized in Lake Michigan near South Haven on Thursday. South Haven Area Emergency Services says the women, ages 18 and 19 and from out of state, had entered the lake near South Haven’s South Beach. A shoreline homeowner called 911 when she saw the women in distress about 200 yards offshore around 3:45 p.m. The kayakers were found about a half mile south with waves pushing them against rocks. One of the women suffered scrapes, but didn’t need medical attention. Neither was wearing a life jacket, and SHAES says yellow warning flags were flying at the South beach with waves building to three-four feet.
