Kayaker rescued by Coast Guard on Lake Michigan

MUSKEGON (WKZO) -- Matt Frymire almost made it across Lake Michigan in a kayak, but had to be rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard off the coast of Muskegon Monday.

Frymire had been trying to travel from Milwaukee to Muskegon, but high waves and strong winds wore him out and nearly killed him. He sent a distress signal Monday morning after more than 34 hours on the lake, and was picked up just 30 miles from his destination.

Frymire said if he were to attempt the feat again, he'd make sure he had a chase boat with him.
