Police said that a call came in around 3:45 a.m. that two people were struggling with the waves in the 1000-block of North Lake Shore Drive.

Upon arrival, police learned that a woman got out of the water but a man was believed to still be in the water.

A Chicago Fire Department dive team tracked him down, brought him to shore and then to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he died, police said.

The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a beach hazard statement for unsafe swimming conditions, including a risk for rip currents, along Lake Erie beaches through 10 p.m. Saturday.

The NWS says swimming risks exist due to a combination of wind, large waves, rip currents and longshore currents, which could create life-threatening conditions even for good swimmers.
