‘We wouldn’t have made it’: 6 boaters rescued from sinking vessel on Lake Michigan

Saved by the Jacket

Six friends sailing in the middle of Lake Michigan grabbed buckets and bailed water Monday as their boat started sinking. “It was a situation that could’ve got a lot worse,” Boatswain Mate John Huber, of the Coast Guard, said. “It was good they had their life jackets on when we got on scene if it did have to turn into a recovery situation. Luckily with our pumps they’re very powerful.”
