Divers find 2nd body near where SUV entered Calumet River
CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago Police Department divers have recovered a second body from the Calumet River near where an SUV went into the water.
Police say divers pulled the body from the river Friday morning in the Hegewisch neighborhood on the city’s southeast side.
The body hasn’t been identified, but police believe it’s from an SUV that was driven into the river early Sunday.
Dive teams recovered the first body Wednesday. It also hasn’t been identified.
A 26-year-old man who was found walking nearby told officers he escaped the SUV and believed his two friends might have not got out. He told police the other two occupants of the car were men ages 23 and 26.
Authorities have recovered the SUV from the river but no one was inside.
