CUDAHY — South Milwaukee and Cudahy firefighters rescued a person from the Lake Michigan shoreline Saturday night, June 30.

At around 10 p.m., a call came in regarding someone that had fallen off the lake bluff in the area near Ramsey and Lake Drive.

Responding officers found a 30-year-old man in need of medical attention after he fell roughly 100 feet onto the beach below.  Authorities quickly realized the portion of the beach where the victim was located was difficult to access.

Around 45 minutes later, Cudahy fire crews requested South Milwaukee’s rescue boats for help.

Once the man was rescued, he was brought aboard South Milwaukee’s inflatable raft and then moved to the rescue boat.

He was then taken to the South Milwaukee Yacht Club so he could be transported to a hospital for treatment. He has since been discharged from the hospital.
