St. Joseph It’s been nearly a month since the life ring installation was complete at Silver Beach in St. Joseph Michigan, and city leaders say they're already making a difference.

Commissioners heard an update at this week's meeting. According to our reporting partners at WSJM , a 19-year-old from the Chicago area jumped off the South Pier on Monday, and was saved when his father threw two rings into the water.

By the time emergency crews arrived, the father and son were already putting the rings back in their place.

The life rings cost the city $4,000.
