Ohio Beach Closed on Lake Erie after Second Swimmer Goes Missing in Less Than a Month

A beach along Lake Erie in Ohio has been closed after the second swimmer in a month went missing.

Nickel Plate Beach will be closed until further notice while the city looks at ways to improve safety at the beach, which is about 50 miles west of Cleveland. A Huron City official says that the high water levels and strong winds have been creating dangerous conditions.

Search crews have been looking for a 29-year-old woman who was swimming with her family on Sunday when she went under. Earlier this month, an 18-year-old man drowned while helping a group struggling in the water.
