Mother, two children saved from Lake Superior rip current
A woman and two children were rescued from Lake Superior on Wednesday after they got caught in what meteorologists called a freak rip current.
Although flags flown near the near Park Point's 12th Street Beach were green, meaning conditions did not meet the criteria for rip currents, an 8-year-old boy and 10-year-old girl playing in the water were pulled out about 500 feet from shore, according to Duluth Police information officer Jim Hansen.
