A seven-year-old was not seriously hurt, but was taken to a Sheboygan hospital to get checked out.

Police said family members took the girls to the Lake Michigan beach.

Some teens on a jet ski rescued the six-year-old after a bystander flagged them down.

The seven-year-old was saved by a woman walking on the beach. She swam to the sandbar, and pulled the youngster back to shore. An ambulance crew got to the scene a little before 6 p.m. Thursday.
