Missing boater’s body recovered from Lake Michigan


The man who fell off a sailboat and disappeared in Lake Michigan has been found.

Daniel Brown, 56, of Chicago, was discovered Wednesday morning.

He fell off the bow when a railing broke between Montrose Beach and Diversey Harbor about 2 miles from shore on Saturday night.

His passengers saw him resurface once, and tried to throw him a life ring, but couldn’t save him.

An autopsy will be performed Thursday.
