A 5-year-old child was pulled from Lake Michigan near downtown Kenosha Tuesday evening, July 12. The child's condition is unknown at this time. It happened at the beach near Pennoyer Park during the city's weekly concert series at the bandshell. The child was pulled from the water at about 7:15 p.m. Tuesday evening, but investigators stayed long after talking to possible witnesses and the child's family. Rescue crews carried the child from the water and placed them on a stretcher as they walked across the beach and into a waiting ambulance. Police would not tell us that child's status this evening, saying family members were still being notified. The first call was made shortly before 6:30 p.m. for a child missing from the beach. Dozens of Kenosha police and fire crews responded to the scene and were quickly joined by the Kenosha County Dive Team and the U.S. Coast Guard.
