SCSU swim team captain saves 3 swimmers in Lake Superior while on vacation


It was a warm but windy Sunday in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula near Marquette.

Twenty-one-year-old Marena Kouba and her boyfriend, Dayton Nash, were on vacation at the beach.

“We were at the island (Little Presque Isle) and the waves were really huge. There was a bad current, it was really strong even though you’re just stepping in the water,” Kouba said.

The couple had been watching some swimmers, two young kids and an adult, when they heard a yell for help.
