The body of a New York City man has been found off Lake Michigan's Indiana shore after a boating accident.

Thirty-one-year-old Leonel Dominguez had been missing since a small inflatable boat capsized on Monday amid 3-foot-waves.

Porter County Coroner Chuck Harris tells the Post-Tribune he was called to the lakeshore in Beverly Shores on Saturday afternoon after a boater found Dominguez's body in the lake.

A companion swimming with Dominguez, Evelyn Hernandez, was helped to shore by another swimmer shortly after the accident.
