Poseidon is Angry
- A Chicago sailor and a friend were plucked from Lake Michigan when their sailboat capsized off Montrose Harbor this afternoon -- almost exactly a year after he was rescued by his wife when a storm flipped the same boat during a birthday celebration.
[...] The boat capsized near Belmont Harbor around 2:30 p.m., and winds carried it north to Montrose Harbor. When a police boat pulled up, Kovats and his friend were struggling to hold on to the side of the boat, officials said. They were not wearing life-jackets.
Rescuers threw a line to the men but they were too exhausted, apparently from hypothermia, a police spokesman said. Two divers then went into the water and pulled the men to safety around 2:50 p.m. Officials estimate the two were in the water for about 15 minutes. They were taken in good condition to Weiss Memorial Hospital and St. Joseph Hospital.
Time to start charging this guy for use of police and fire resources every time he goes out and endangers officers' and firefighters' lives needlessly.
