An Illinois teenager has been identified as the swimmer who drowned in Lake Michigan at Indiana Dunes State Park.

The Porter County coroner’s office says 18-year-old Dominic Snovicky of Plainfield, Illinois, was rushed to Porter Regional Hospital and pronounced dead at 2:12 p.m. Tuesday.

Porter Fire Chief Lewis Craig Jr. says Snovicky went underwater about 11 a.m.

He was found in the water just after 12:30 p.m. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says witnesses said the teen was hit by a wave.

There was a beach hazard warning for high waves and dangerous swimming conditions at the time.
