A boat carrying three people overturned in Lake Michigan Thursday, killing a woman and injuring two other people near Belmont Harbor on the North Side.

About 2 a.m., emergency crews responded to calls of a sailboat that crashed into a dock, causing it to capsize near the 2200 block of North Lake Shore Drive, Chicago police and the Chicago Fire Department said.

Jessica Ceja, 27, was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious-to-critical condition and later died, police and the Cook County medical examiner's office said. She lived in Vernon Hills.

A 28-year-old man and 31-year-old woman were rescued from the water and were in good condition, police said.

An autopsy released Friday found Ceja died by drowning, and her death was ruled accidental, the examiner's office said.
