A person was found dead in the Chicago River Tuesday in the South Loop.

A marine unit responded about 5 p.m. to the 2200 block of South Lumber Street for reports of what “appeared to be a person” in the water, Chicago police said. A male, whose age isn’t known, was pulled from the water.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not provided details about the death.
