FAIRPORT HARBOR -- In filing the weekend report on Monday, it was learned the Lake County Sheriff's Office Marine Patrol Unit was on patrol Thursday about 7 p.m. and spotted a Painesville Township man and two girls on a jet ski.
The jet ski was against the rock break wall near the mouth of the harbor at the north end of the Grand River in Fairport Harbor.
The man was waving an orange distress flag, which caught the marine patrol units' attention. Deputies learned that the jet ski had become disabled near the mouth of the harbor, and the wind had carried the jet ski and its occupants against the East-West break wall.
The Sheriff's Office Marine Patrol unit was able to render assistance and was able to get the juvenile females safely on board the patrol boat.
The jet ski was then pulled away from the rocks and was towed safely back to the Fairport Port Authority.
Deputies said all three one the jet ski were wearing their required life jackets and the man maintained all required safety equipment on board and helped him successfully alert other boaters that they were in distress.
