MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

Seventeen people are alive thanks to two separate rescues by the Coast Guard on Lake St. Clair this past week.

The Coast Guard said it was just before 7 a.m. when the first call came in. A 39-foot vessel was taking on water with 15 people aboard, four and a half miles from shore.

The second incident may have been an even closer call. The Coast Guard was searching for a missing person when guardsmen saw two people fall into the water when their boat capsized.

They were quickly scooped up and taken back to shore.
