DULUTH, Minn. - Two skydivers were rescued from the waters of Lake Superior on Saturday afternoon.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Department said that one of the skydivers landed about 200 yards from shore. That skydiver was brought to shore by someone with a flotation device.

The second skydiver was further out on the lake, officials said. A float plane was used to pick up the second person.

The two skydivers were not hurt. Both were jumping with a group from Superior Sky Dive. They were supposed to land near the harbor side of the Park Point Beach House, but they jumped too early from the plane, officials said.

The Duluth Fire Department, the Minnesota Coast Guard and the St. Louis county Rescue Squad all took part in the rescue.
