DULUTH, Minn. (KMSP) -

A 12-year-old girl clinging to a Lake Superior break wall was rescued after she and two friends tried to swim in the cold, 4-foot waves Wednesday.

Strong northeast winds rip currents danger and created dangerous swimming conditions at Park Point in Duluth Wednesday. High surf warnings and large swells were spotted at area beaches.

The rescued girl, Mia Ojanen, says her group was near the shore and was taken in a rip current. The Duluth News Tribune says Ojanen held onto a grate in a drain on the break wall until rescuers arrived.

Ojanen was brought to shore then tended to by paramedics.
