By Kelly Moreno,

The search continues for two missing people after a boat turned over in Lake Michigan, an accident that has left one woman dead and a man hospitalized.

Fox News reported that the Chicago Fire Department suspended the search for the night on Sunday, after having recovered two of the victims that morning.

According to CBS Chicago, the survivor was spotted around 6:15 a.m. by a fishing boat. Police said that he was found near the 31st Street Harbor.

The man was suffering from hypothermia, and the information he gave the authorities about the number of people on board was contradictory. The man also explained that the boat he was on capsized at around 7 p.m. on Saturday while they were six miles offshore.

The woman who died was in her late 20s and was pulled out of the water in extremely bad condition. She was taken to the hospital but unfortunately didn't make it.

A 30-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman are still missing.
