CLEVELAND (AP) - Officials say one of two young men rescued from Lake Erie at Cleveland’s Wildwood Park has died.

The local district of the U.S. Coast Guard says the two were rescued Monday night after they reportedly jumped into the water from a fishing pier.

Cleveland Assistant Fire Chief Tim O’Toole tells Northeast Ohio Media Group that the water was choppy and cold when a Coast Guard boat rescued one man and emergency crews found the other clinging to a ladder on a bulkhead. Both were taken to a hospital.

WJW-TV reports one of them was pronounced dead at the hospital. The medical examiner’s office says he was a 21-year-old man from Cleveland.
