Tuesday Afternoon at approximately 3:00 PM, Huron Central Dispatch received calls from different on shore bystanders about a catamaran being flipped over in the water, in front of an approaching severe thunderstorm, about 250 yards south of the western end of Sand Point, in Caseville Township, according to Huron County Sheriff Kelly Hanson.

"With Deputies and our trailered airboat responding to the scene, as well as the Caseville Fire Department and their trailered Zodiac rescue boat, 2 occupants with life jackets on were observed in the water attempting to right the catamaran." said Hanson. "As the storm passed and with strong sustained varying winds favoring the north, it wasn't long before the capsized catamaran and victims were over a mile offshore. By 3:45 PM, and around a mile from North Island in Wild Fowl Bay, both victims were safely aboard our airboat and being brought back to shore in the rough choppy water of the after storm. Once on shore the victims from Farmington Hills, a 38 year old man and a 15 year old woman, refused medical treatment from an awaiting Scheurer Ambulance. The catamaran was left adrift and will be picked up by a salvage company likely sometime Tuesday."

Also assisting with a standby rescue boat was the Port Austin Fire Department.
