A man died after being pulled from Lake Michigan Sunday afternoon in Rogers Park on the North Side.

Emergency crews were called at 2:14 p.m. to the beach at Loyola Park near Sheridan Road and Greenleaf Avenue, according to police and fire officials. A kayaker had brought the man to shore and started performing CPR by the time paramedics arrived.
