Coast Guard suspends search of Lake Michigan for 2 boaters; 2 others rescued, but 1 later dies | Star TribuneAuthorities suspended their search late Sunday for two people who were on a boat that apparently capsized in Lake Michigan near Chicago, hours after the rescue of the other two who were onboard, including a woman who later died.
The Coast Guard released a statement late Sunday saying it had called off the active search for a missing 30-year-old man and 27-year-old woman. It said crews originally responded to a report of six people who were in the water, but it later confirmed there were only four onboard, including a man and woman who were pulled alive from the water.
The four were headed from New Buffalo, Michigan, when they ended up in the 60-degree water about 7 miles offshore of Chicago, where they were going, the Coast Guard said.
A fisherman spotted one of the men in the lake at around 6:15 a.m. Sunday, pulled him onboard and called the Coast Guard, officials said. Searchers pulled a woman from the lake about two hours later.
Both were taken to Mercy Hospital, where the woman was pronounced dead, the Coast Guard said. The man was in stable condition late Sunday with symptoms of hypothermia.
