Teen in critical condition after rescue from water in Michigan City

A 15-year-old Michigan City boy is in critical condition this morning after nearly drowning in Lake Michigan.

It happened in Michigan City. The Indiana DNR says the boy was swimming with friends and went under near the pier, about 200 feet off the shores of Washington Park Beach.

The Coast Guard rescued the boy within 5 minutes after he fell in.

The boy was in full cardiac arrest and lifeguards performed CPR until medics arrived and took the teen to the hospital.

Officials say the boy did regain a pulse. Right now, he is at Memorial Hospital in South Bend.

The Coast Guard says waves were about 1 to 2 feet high when he went under.
