Kayaker rescued from Lake Michigan Monday

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A kayaker was rescued Monday while he was just 30 miles short of crossing Lake Michigan from Milwaukee to Muskegon.

Media reports said 31-year-old Matthew Frymire of Grand Haven Township in Michigan activated an emergency beacon, after 10 foot high waves got to be too much for him.

Rescuers in a Coast Guard helicopter spotted the beacon and reached Frymire 2 hours after the first distress signal. Officials said he suffered "extreme sea sickness."

Frymire took off from Milwaukee on Saturday.
