SOUTH HAVEN (WKZO) -- Two swimmers who jumped off of the pier in South Haven had to be rescued Wednesday afternoon when large waves threw them against nearby rocks.
At about 1:45pm, South Haven Area Emergency Services and the South Have Police Department responded to a distress call about the pair. Throwing flotation rings out didn't work because of the large waves, and two rescue swimmers had to be sent in.
The two victims and one rescue swimmer suffered only minor injuries from the rocks and everyone was pulled out of the water safely.
Officials want to use the occasion to remind everyone to stay out of the water on days that red rip current warning flags are flying.
