VERMILION, OH (WOIO) -

Quick response from the Vermilion Police Department saved the life of a 17-year-old swimmer in Lake Erie.

On Sunday May 26, 2013 at approximately 7:05 p.m. the Vermilion Police Department received a phone call from Delores Kovacs stating that her daughter, 17-year-old Carolyn Kingsboro, was swimming in Lake Erie off of Main Street Beach.

Kovacs was concerned that her daughter was too far from shore to be able to return.

Vermilion Police sent a police boat to the area.  No one was spotted.

The mom later told police her daughter was in the area near Showse Park instead.

The police boat found the teen a mile off shore in the area of Showse Park.

They noticed she was clearly in need of help.  Police say she was cold, pail in color and out of breath. She had no other visible injuries.

The teen said she didn't know why she was swimming so far off shore.

At the time of the rescue Carolyn was in 9 feet of water. Water temperature was 56 degrees. Air temperature was 57 degrees.
