MICHIGAN CITY — A man found floating in Lake Michigan on Friday night remained in a coma at a Chicago hospital on Monday, according to a friend of the family.

He was one of several people rescued from the water in Northwest Indiana during a weekend in which Beach Hazard Warnings were issued, warning swimmers to stay out of the water due to rip currents.

I was near the Old Lighthouse when the rescue teams flew down the street on this call and when the ambulance came back being lead by two police cars, lights and sirens blaring. Guess I know this Lake and beach too well to not assume it was a possible drowning situation. Very sad.
