A man died after he was pulled from the water Friday night at the 59th Street Harbor in Jackson Park on the South Side.

About 8:45 p.m., drivers pulled 30-year-old Tyrone W. Campbell from the water near the 5900 block of South Lake Shore Drive, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Curtis Hudson and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He had apparently fallen from “Dock C”, located behind the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago police said. Someone had attempted to throw a lifesaver to the man, but he went under.

Paramedics began CPR on Campbell and took him to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he died, authorities said. He lived in Calumet Park.

An autopsy did not rule on the cause and manner of Campbell’s death pending further investigation, according to the medical examiner’s office.
