Enjoy Sand Digging at Michigan’s Lakeshore? This May Make You Reconsider
Who is ready for a beach day?
Ahh yes! The lakeshore has been calling my name.
I bet it has for you, too! You are probably ready to bring the entire family to Lake Michigan this weekend.
From sandcastles to beach volleyball, it is now the time to bask in the sun alongside Lake Michigan.
However, with all of that fun comes some dangers, too.
We all know about the dangers of water. But do you know how dangerous the sand is too?
Caution: No Digging!
The Weather Channel reported that a teenager from Virginia recently passed away because a nearby dune collapsed into the hole that he was digging and buried him.
Now, it has become a number one priority to remind beachgoers of the dangers of digging holes in the sand.
If you or your little ones plan to dig a few holes on the shores of Lake Michigan, it is suggested that you fill the holes back before you leave.
The Weather Channel says that,
safety officials say that no one should ever be in a hole deeper than the height of their own knees.
As the warmer weather becomes more consistent in Michigan, the lakeshore will be flooded with people.
So just remember to be as safe as possible.
But have fun! Happy Beach Day!
