Sheriff: Family's kayak capsizes, father and 3 children die

Master Chief Alan Haraf of the Ninth Coast Guard District said the children were ages 3, 6 and 9.

The family vacationed in the area a year ago and looked forward to visiting again, according to Bobi Jo Mews, Cari's sister.

"I got a text message that said '911, ' and then immediately following, 'Michigan Island.' I knew that they were going kayaking that day ..."

"They all had life jackets on, but had been in the water for quite some time by the time the initial response vessel made it there", Peters said.

Ms Mews-Fryman was able to text her sister a message of distress from her phone, which she had stored in a waterproof bag. With a water temperature of 60 degrees, symptoms of hypothermia can begin in two hours or less, according to the University of Minnesota's Sea Grant office.

The first to respond to that alert was the U.S. Geological Survey research ship KIYI, which found the woman at about 10 p.m. on the west side of Michigan Island.

The father, as well as two of the children, were found dead in the water just after midnight.

Bobi Joe Mews, told WCCO-TV that her sister and Fryman wanted to take their children out on a trip before the new school year began. The Coast Guard issued an emergency broadcast to all boats in the area asking them to divert to where the kayak had capsized.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland has said she remains optimistic that a deal can be reached. The negotiation tactics of the Trump administration is "a classic power play", says Evenett.

According to Walters, Mews told the crew that water had swamped her family's kayak.

According to the Star Tribune, the family has been identified as 39-year-old Eric Fryman, 29-year-old Cari Mews-Fryman, and their three children: 9-year-old Kyra, 5-year-old Annaliese, and 3-year-old Jansen.

Haraf said the rescue crews worked around the clock, with a relief shift coming in at about 2 a.m.

The body of nine-year-old Krya was located by National Park authorities on the shore of Michigan Island the following morning.

Their boat capsized Thursday night between Stockton and MI islands while the family was vacationing on Madeline Island, just off the coast of Bayfield, Wis., about 85 miles east of Duluth.

"You think about how people have to really respect the power of this lake".

Paddlers crossing open water between islands can become exposed to strong winds and waves, he said.
