Montrose Harbor: Fisherman in wheelchair falls into lake and dies

A 76-year-old North Side man who was fishing on a pier at Montrose Harbor died Sunday after his motorized wheelchair propelled him into Lake Michigan, police said.

Duong Le, of the 900 block of West Lakeside Place, was sitting in the wheelchair and fishing with friends about noon when he and the wheelchair somehow fell into the water, according to Chicago police spokesman Matthew Jackson and the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Le was pulled out of the water and taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital, where he died about an hour later, Jackson said.

An autopsy was scheduled for Monday, he said.
