1 dead, more missing in Lake Michigan off Chicago

CHICAGO (AP) — A woman on a boat that capsized miles from Chicago's shoreline has died after being pulled from Lake Michigan, and the U.S. Coast Guard says crews are searching for as many as four other people.

The Cook County medical examiner's office confirmed the woman's death Sunday afternoon, but had no other details.

The Coast Guard says a man rescued from the lake by a fisherman Sunday morning is at a hospital suffering from hypothermia.

Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer Levi Read says crews aren't sure how many people they're searching for, because the rescued boater gave conflicting information.

Officials say the lake water is 60 degrees and that the boaters were wearing flotation devices.

The boat was traveling between New Buffalo, Michigan, and the Chicago area.
