A man was found dead in the Chicago River Tuesday in the South Loop.

A marine unit responded about 5 p.m. to the 2200 block of South Lumber Street for reports of what “appeared to be a person” in the water, Chicago police said.

The 58-year-old man was pulled from the water, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy revealed he died of drowning, but the medical examiner’s office was unable to rule on a manner of death.

Area Central detectives are conducting a death investigation.
