Rescue of Kids From Miami-Dade Lake Caught on Camera

Video showing the rescue of three kids from a lake in southwest Miami-Dade was released Thursday.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials said the kids were on some type of raft in the lake in the 5200 block of Southwest 72nd Avenue when it began to sink Wednesday.

A Good Samaritan on a jet ski helped take two kids to an island in the lake and dropped the other off at a nearby field.

A fire rescue helicopter helped hoist the kids from the island. No one was injured.
