CHICAGO (STMW) — An intoxicated man was rescued early Thursday after falling into Lake Michigan.

A 31-year-old man was walking along the edge of the lake in the 1300 block of North Lake Shore Drive about 1:30 a.m. when he fell in, said police News Affairs Officer Ronald Gaines.

Two passersby rescued him from the water, Gaines said.

He was taken in “stable” condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Gaines said.
