Woman Rescued From Lake Harriet After 7 Minutes Underwater


A 20-year-old woman is alive Wednesday night after a dramatic rescue at a popular Minneapolis beach.

The woman and a 17-year-old girl were trying to swim to a floating dock on Lake Harriet just before 5 p.m. Both went underwater, and the teenager made it safely back to shore — but the woman never resurfaced.

“For the first couple of minutes it was scary stuff,” Zachary Beckman said.
