Authorities ID boater pulled from Lake Michigan

CHICAGO, IL (AP) -

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office has identified a woman who died after a weekend boating accident on Lake Michigan.

Twenty-six-year-old Ashley Haws of Chicago was pulled out of the water Sunday morning. She was in cardiac arrest and unconscious and was pronounced dead at an area hospital.

Authorities say Haws was one of four people who had to jump from a 30-foot boat Saturday night.

On Sunday morning, a fisherman pulled a man out of the water and then Haws was pulled out of the water two hours later.

The man, whose name hasn't been released, told authorities that the boat caught fire Saturday night and the four had to jump. Two other people -- a 30-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman -- remain missing and are presumed dead.
