CHICAGO (AP) -
Chicago fire authorities say three men have been rescued after their
sailboat capsized in Lake Michigan.
A fire department
spokesman tells the Chicago Sun-Times two 63-year-old men and a 50-year-old
man were bound for Monroe Harbor on Tuesday night. A 46 mph gust capsized
the 19-foot sailboat around 8 p.m.
The spokesman says
fire department crews were already on the lake. They anticipated that many
boats would try to return to the harbor due to incoming storm clouds.
He says all three
men were wearing life preservers and refused hospital treatment.
