Three people have been safely rescued from the breakwall at Marquette’s Upper Harbor.
The U. S. Coast Guard tells ABC 10 that the trio was in a boat when the weather turned on them. The three ended up on the rocks at the far end of the breakwall Saturday afternoon.
A 45 foot boat from Coast Guard Station Marquette was launched, but could not get close enough to the three to make a rescue. An inflatable boat was then used to reach the victims.
Covered with blankets, the three were brought ashore by about 4:30 p.m.
Additional details on the incident will be posted as they become available. ABC 10’s Jake Taylor is at the scene and will file a complete online report this evening, with a broadcast news story on the incident scheduled to air Monday at 6:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
