A woman was in the right place at the right time Labor Day weekend as she rushed to save a boy in Lake Michigan.
Sherri Talcott is a former lifeguard and alert boater who happened to be walking along the lake's beach when she noticed an 11-year-old boy struggling to swim. While a man named John stayed ashore recording the rescue, Talcott grabbed a life jacket, jumped into the rough waters and paddled to the boy and his step-father.
Talcott said the boy was doing well treading water, but his step-dad was in shock and had trouble staying above the water.
"We had waves going over the top of us. I just said keep holding onto the jacket. We're good. Keep holding on to it," Talcott said.
