MICHIGAN CITY, Ind.—The U.S. Coast Guard said Monday that a 16-year-old was found in the water at a Michigan City beach.

Officials said the teen was unresponsive and being taken to the hospital.

The Coast Guard official said that the teen had jumped off of the lighthouse near Washington Park Beach and never resurfaced, which prompted the search Monday afternoon.

The LaPorte County Sheriff is now investigating the incident.
