MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) - Indiana conservation police say a 14-year-old northwest Indiana teenager has drowned in Lake Michigan.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources said late Monday that 14-year-old Travis Mensha of Michigan City died about 7 p.m. Monday at a Michigan City hospital. Officials said Travis disappeared about 175 feet from shore at Washington Park in Michigan City a little after 6 p.m. Monday.

Divers started searching for Travis shortly afterward and his body was recovered.

Officials said another teen was with Travis at the time. That teen was able to rescue himself at a nearby break wall.
