Man found dead in Lake Michigan near Buckingham Fountain

At a news conference Thursday, local officials urged Chicagoans to stay safe in the water after a nearly record-breaking number of drownings in 2020. Last year, 56 people drowned in Lake Michigan, and nine people had drowned in the lake in 2021 as of Thursday afternoon, according to Dave Benjamin, co-founder of the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project, which tracks drownings and advocates for water safety.
