3rd body found after river collision near Chicago

PALOS HILLS — Authorities say they've recovered the body of a third missing boater in the Cal-Sag Channel in suburban Chicago. Two others died in Friday's crash of a pleasure boat and a 66-foot commercial vessel.

The Coast Guard says a man's body was found Monday morning, the last of the three victims. The man wasn't wearing a life jacket. Investigators are still looking into what caused the collision.

The two other bodies, one male and one female, were recovered Saturday. They too weren't wearing life jackets.

The Cook County medical examiner's office says 33-year-old Jeremy Muzika and 40-year-old Viengsavnh Bielarz died of drowning and multiple injuries. Their deaths have been ruled accidental.
