A rescue boat was launched, but "rescue efforts were hampered by five- to seven-foot waves near the shoreline", the news release said. "That's why we issue those warnings, but sometimes people aren't aware of it and what's going on", Simonson said.

The girl, identified as Lily Elizabeth Fuglie from Hudson, Wisconsin, was located and pulled from the water around 5:15 p-m.

A rip current warning was in effect Thursday and into Friday morning.
