Man in Halloween costume found in Lake Michigan

Fisherman discovers body in water

The Milwaukee Fire Department’s dive team recovered the body of an adult male in Lake Michigan early Sunday morning.

A fisherman discovered the body at about 2:30 a.m. in the channel next to the Yacht Club on Lincoln Memorial Drive.

The victim was dressed in a Captain America costume.

Paramedics conducted CPR on the victim on the dock but were unable to revive him.

Investigators weren’t sure how long the man was in the water. Water temperatures are currently at around 45 degrees, but even after 30 minutes of exposure, resuscitation is still possible.
