A man died after going swimming in Lake Michigan Monday night.

A witness told police that several people jumped in the water around 10:22 p.m. near 49th Street Beach but a 27-year-old did not resurface, police said.

The CPD marine unit responded to the scene and pulled the man from the water. He was transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he died a short time later. His identity has not yet been released by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
