CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A boat carrying three people overturned in Lake Michigan Thursday, killing a woman and injuring two other people near Belmont Harbor on the North Side.

About 2 a.m., emergency crews responded to calls of a sailboat that crashed into a dock, causing it to capsize near the 2200 block of North Lake Shore Drive, Chicago police and the Chicago Fire Department said.

A 28-year-old man and 31-year-old woman were rescued from the water and are in good condition, police said.

The third passenger, a 27-year-old woman, was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious-to-critical condition and later died, authorities said.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not released details about the death.
