CHESTERTON, Ind. — Authorities say two Chicago boys died after they were pulled from Lake Michigan at Indiana Dunes State Park in separate incidents.

The Porter County coroner’s office on Saturday identified one of the deceased as 10-year-old Joshua Torres. He was found face down in the water Saturday afternoon about 40 yards from the shoreline.

The second boy, a 14-year-old, was found in the water in the same area about an hour later.

The older boy was taken to Porter Regional Hospital and later airlifted to a children’s hospital at the University of Chicago.

Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources said he died early Sunday morning. His name was not immediately released.

Officials are investigating.
