A man died after being pulled from Lake Michigan Monday afternoon on the North Side.

Emergency crews responded to a call of a person in the water at 2:45 p.m. in the 300 block of West Montrose Harbor Drive, according to police and fire officials.

The Fire Department Marine Unit found the 24-year-old in the water about 100 yards from the lighthouse off Montrose Beach, authorities said.

Ricardo Salvana was taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital, where he died at 3:40 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in the 6700 block of North Sauganash.

An autopsy Tuesday found he drowned and his death was ruled an accident, according to the medical examiner’s office.
