Saved from drowning in rip current

My family and I were enjoying a day on a secluded beach on Lake Michigan—swimming, building sand castles, and simply enjoying the lovely scenery all around us. In the afternoon, my husband and toddler took a nap on the shore, and I, accompanied by my sister, took my older son into the water to jump and play in the waves, which were growing taller. 

After about 30 minutes, we were all feeling tired, so we decided to swim back to shore and rest. But while playing in the waves, my son and I had gotten farther out into the lake, to the point where we were having trouble standing or touching the bottom. My sister was closer to shore, and my son and I tried to swim toward her, but we were being pushed deeper into the lake by a strong rip current underneath us.
