A woman died after she was pulled from Lake Michigan Thursday near Lincoln Park on the North Side.
Chicago police and fire crews were dispatched at 1:36 p.m. for reports of a person in the water near Fullerton Avenue Beach in the 2100 block of North Lake Shore Drive, according to police and Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford.
Niharika Yogesh Maniar, 69, was removed from the lake and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in “grave” condition, authorities and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
Authorities said she has since been pronounced dead. It was not immediately clear how the woman ended up in the water.
Area Central detectives are investigating.
