Marine Unit Again
We take the good news where we can find it, and the Marine Unit must be manned by nothing but heroes!
- A 911 call about a boat sinking in Lake Michigan resulted in marine unit police rescuing two men this evening, according to police.
The incident was called in to emergency dispatchers at about 7:30 p.m. about the 28-foot-power boat and resulted in Chicago Police Marine Unit officers responding, police said.
The boat was located about a half-mile off east of Navy Pier in the lake, police said. Police found that the boat was quickly taking in water through its engine shaft, police said. One of the men called police on his cell phone, police said.
All joking aside, another nice job by the guys and gals on the water. It certainly bolsters the case for keeping a decent sized and adequately prepared presence on the lakefront.
