Tourist falls into icy Lake Michigan: reports

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Two daring men had quite the scare along Lake Michigan early Friday morning. 

Air FOX captured images of two men sitting on the edge of an icy Lake Michigan at Oak Street Beach early Friday morning. One of the men could be seen dipping his toes into the water. 

As FOX 32 Meteorologist Mike Caplan was warning viewers NOT to do what these two men were doing, one of the men fell into the water. Luckily, the other man was able to pull him to safety. 

According to reports, the two men are tourists. 

Officials are warning people to stay off the ice and water as temperatures rise this weekend. Ice on the Chain O'Lakes can get to be about a foot thick, but other areas have no ice at all.
