PRESQUE ISLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. – The U.S. Coast Guard says a floating cooler helped save a man whose boat capsized in Lake Huron in northern Michigan.
The Coast Guard says the 46-year-old man didn't have a life jacket when his boat overturned Monday morning off Presque Isle (PRESK EEL) County's Presque Isle Township, about 200 miles north of Detroit.
The agency says the man survived in the 60-degree water by clinging to a cooler. Another man on the boat swam to shore and called for help.
A Coast Guard boat found the man about 2 p.m. He was suffering from hypothermia and was taken to a hospital for observation.
The agency did not release the man's name or hometown.
