Police in Waukegan are crediting a Good Samaritan with rescuing a man from a car that had just plunged into the lake at the Waukegan Yacht Club.
It was just after 3 this afternoon when Waukegan authorities got a call about a car into the water at the yacht club.
Waulegan Police Commander Joe Florip says when police and fire got to the scene – one man who had been in the car had already swum to shore.
“And then a second subject was being assisted from the harbor by a good Samaritan. A Good Samaritan had gone into the harbor with a life preserver and had assisted the second person out.”
Commander Florip says the Good Samaritan was an employee of the yacht club who jumped into the water wearing a dress shirt and slacks.
