4 people rescued after capsizing on Lake Michigan

WINTHROP HARBOR (AP) — A good Samaritan has helped rescue four people after their catamaran capsized on Lake Michigan.

The Coast Guard says the unnamed good Samaritan contacted a guard station in Kenosha, Wis., via radio Friday night. The man said he rescued four people whose 12-foot sailing catamaran had capsized near Winthrop Harbor, Ill.

A Coast Guard response boat responded to the scene and was able to re-right the catamaran and tow it to Winthrop Harbor Marina. The four people who had been on the boat were also taken to the marina, where they were examined by an emergency medical crew and released in good condition.

The Coast Guard did not release names or hometowns of the people involved.
