CHICAGO — Police have found the body of a 21-year-old Minnesota woman who fell into the Chicago River with two men Monday morning.
The body was found about 1 p.m. Wednesday near River Esplanade Park, police said.
A 21-year-old woman was one of three people who fell into the water about 12:05 a.m. Monday. A member of the group dropped his phone into the river near 439 E. North Water St. in Streeterville, police said.
The woman was identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as Lauren Li of Burnsville, Minn., a Twin Cities suburb.
The park where the the body was found Wednesday is not far from where the phone was dropped.
The man, identified as 26-year-old Ken Hoang, climbed over a fence to retrieve the phone and fell into the river. The woman and a 23-year-old man climbed over to help, but also fell in.
A Chicago Police boat pulled Hoang and the other man from the water.
Hoang, from St. Paul, Minn., was taken in serious-to-critical condition to Northwestern Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:34 p.m. Monday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.
Hoang did have alcohol in his system, according to the morgue.
