PORT SHELDON - A 40-year-old Lake Michigan diver was found in a retention pond Saturday after being sucked into a power plant's intake system and pulled through 2,500 feet of pipe.
The Grayling woman, whose name was not released, was taken to North Ottawa Community Hospital for treatment of minor injuries, Ottawa County Sheriff's Department deputies told The Holland Sentinel.
She was diving off Port Sheldon with three others when she was sucked through the 8-foot-wide pipeline. Sgt. Jeff Somers said the other divers called for help when they discovered she was missing.
Consumers Energy workers found her in the pond. It was the first time in 25 years that someone had been sucked into the intake pipe, said Dennis McKee, a Consumers Energy spokesman.
