The first rescue happened about 1:45 a.m. Monday near Foster Avenue Beach, police said. A 43-year-old woman entered the lake for a swim but soon drifted far from shore, officials said.
A Chicago Fire Department marine unit was called to help and the crew located the woman and brought her in to shore. Her condition was stabilized and she was taken to nearby Weiss Memorial Hospital for an evaluation.
Less than 40 minutes later, officials were called to the 600 block of East Grand Avenue on the Near North Side because a boat had crashed into a breakwall south of Navy Pier, police said.
Six adults were rescued from the water and they were listed in good condition. Police did not say what led to the crash.
