A man died Sunday after jumping into Lake Michigan in Lincoln Park on the North Side.

The 26-year-old needed to be rescued after getting into the water with another man, 35, about 6:30 a.m. in the 2400 block North Lake Shore Drive, Chicago police said.

He was taken to St. Joseph Hospital in critical condition but later succumbed to his injuries, police said. The 35-year-old was not hurt.

Earlier, the Chicago Triathlon canceled the swim portion of the event due to unfavorable swim conditions, but a police source said the rescue was unrelated.
