It was a very scary scene over the Labor Day weekend at Pere Marquette Beach, which is near Muskegon, Michigan. According to WZZM, an 11-year-old boy and his step-father were swimming in Lake Michigan when they started to get pulled out further in the lake because of a strong rip current. Fortunately, Sherri Talcott, who is a former lifeguard, was walking near the water and noticed the two struggling. Talcott then grabbed a life jacket and put her lifeguarding skills to use.

Here's video of the rescue:
