A second teenager is dead after being pulled from Lake Michigan last week.

Yousef Saleh was among several people pulled from the Portage Lakefront on Aug. 16.

The 18-year-old died on Friday, Aug. 21 from his injuries.

Five swimmers struggled in the water that day near the Portage Riverwalk.

Saleh was among four rescued, but 16-year-old Mohamed Obied remained missing. Obied was recovered the next morning and pronounced dead.

On the day of the drowning, the National Weather Service issued a swim risk warning in Indiana due to large waves and strong rip currents.
