1 injured when boat capsizes in Chicago

CHICAGO (AP) -

A Chicago fire spokesman says more than 20 people were rescued and one reported injured when a boat capsized.

The power boat capsized about 7 p.m. Saturday a half-mile from a harbor on South Lake Shore Drive. Fire spokesman Joe Roccasalva told The Associated Press that a man in his 20s suffered a head injury and was taken to a hospital in good condition.

He says the 21 other people who were on the boat were checked at the scene and released.

Other boats that were in the area helped get the people out of the water.

Roccasalva says it's not clear why the boat capsized. He says it did not appear to have hit anything. The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
