Two good Samaritans helped pull a struggling swimmer from Lake Michigan early Tuesday morning on the North Side.
A man began struggling in the water near North Avenue Beach in the 1600 block of North Lake Shore Drive about 7:45 a.m., according to Fire Media Affairs.
Two quick-thinking citizens spotted the swimmer, grabbed a surfboard and took it out to the man in the water, according to Fire Media.
Chicago Fire Department divers responded and two divers went into the lake to assist the three out of the water.
The swimmer was taken in good condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to Fire Media. No one else required medical treatment.
