A Northwestern University graduate student was found dead in Lake Michigan at approximately 11 a.m. Friday. Hyuk Jin Choi, a graduate student in chemistry, was found in the lake by a person kayaking in the lake near Northwestern’s soccer field Friday. A cause of death has not yet been determined.
Choi was from Dukyang Gu, South Korea. He had been a student at Northwestern since fall 2004.
The University expresses its condolences and deepest sympathies to his family, fellow students and friends.
I certainly hope they find out what happens. If nothing else, I hope it was just an accident and no foul play was involved.
More info as it develops.
