Video: Chicago cops save 2 after boat overturns

Two men in Lake Michigan accident spent several minutes clinging for their lives


LAKE MICHIGAN — A dramatic rescue took place on Lake Michigan Wednesday. Two men were rescued by Chicago police after spending several minutes clinging for their lives on the side of their overturned sailboat.

They were being pounded by choppy, frigid waters. Officials say it appears the two were drinking alcohol before the incident. They both were taken to a hospital, where one was being treated for hypothermia.

The men are expected to be fine. Police said given the conditions, the men should not have been sailing.
