The family of Dave Azooz says it was his body that was pulled out of a lake in far north suburban Antioch Tuesday night.
Azooz, 47, and a relative had been out on the lake when he slipped into the water while checking the engine of his boat.
Dive teams were called to Lake Marie in the Chain O’Lakes at 6:30 p.m., after reports of a man falling into the water.
About an hour later, it shifted from rescue mission to recovery mode.
Divers recovered the man’s body shortly before 11 p.m.
Azooz was a father of four and worked as a mechanic.
