CHICAGO (CBS/STMW) – A man’s body was found in the Douglas Park lagoon Saturday morning in the North Lawndale neighborhood.

Firefighters were called to the 1400 block of South Sacramento Avenue about 11:10 a.m. Saturday, for a report of a person in the lagoon at Douglas Park.

About five minutes later, crews found the dead body of a man and turned the scene over to police, Langford said.
