CHICAGO (STMW) — A woman has died and a man was hospitalized after they were rescued from Lake Michigan on Sunday morning — one day after their boat capsized Saturday, authorities said.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office confirmed the woman’s death. Ashley Haws, in her 20s, was taken to Mercy Hospital & Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 10:04 a.m. Sunday.
The man was rescued from the lake after he was spotted by a fishing boat near the 31st Street Harbor about 6:15 a.m., Chicago Police said.
Joel Reiser, a fishing captain with Brush and Roll Charters, said he was about six miles off shore when he spotted what appeared to be a kayak.
