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.
