The body of a 16-year-old New Haven, Ind., girl, was recovered from Lake Michigan in Michigan City on Monday, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources is reporting.

According to DNR, at 2 p.m. emergency personnel responded to the waters near the Michigan City lighthouse pier after the girl was reported missing in the water while swimming with family.

The girl’s body was subsequently recovered by Michigan City firefighters about 50 minutes later. Life-saving measures were immediately begun and she was transported to a nearby hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

“A National Weather Service beach hazard statement reported high-risk swimming conditions for the area at the time of the incident, which remains under investigation,” DNR said.
