Second body pulled from Calumet River

CHICAGO — Divers recovered a body from the Calumet River on Friday morning near the area where a car crashed into the river earlier this week.

The body was found in the river near 13601 South Calhoun Avenue.

Police said it “may be related” to the crash that occurred Nov. 3 in which a car plunged into the river with three people reportedly inside.

A 26-year-old man was found walking on Torrence Avenue on Sunday and was hospitalized.

He was disoriented but told authorities the car crashed into the river at 136th Street and Calhoun Avenue.

Divers recovered a body in the Calumet River on Wednesday, not far from the crash site.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office has not identified either of the two bodies.
