The Chicago Police Marine Unit responded to a call of a person in the water in the 3900 block of South Lake Shore Drive about 8:45 a.m., according to police.

A man, whose age wasn’t immediately available, was rescued from the water and taken in critical condition to Mercy Hospital.

A police source said it appears that the man intentionally jumped into the lake.
