ALPENA COUNTY, Mich. — Michigan State Police troopers and an off-duty Wilson Township firefighter rescued a 10-year-old boy from the waters of the Four Mile Dam in Alpena Township on Thursday evening, WPBN/WGTU reported.
The boy was hanging on to a dam structure when the troopers arrived. They used a personal floatation device to help the boy, and the off-duty firefighter, Christopher Kinsey, used the device to swim to the boy and escorted him to shore.
EMS providers assessed the child, who was later cleared to go home.
