CHICAGO — The Coast Guard in Chicago pulled a zombie from Lake Michigan this past weekend, according to WGN-TV.

High winds and waves on Lake Michigan caused Navy Pier’s Halloween barge to sink Friday, and the Coast Guard confirms that debris from the barge, including zombie mannequins, were pulled from the water.

Chief Petty Officer Alan Haraf tells WGN-TV a boat crew from Station Wilmette Harbor, Ill.,  came across one of the zombie mannequins from the sunken barge and removed it for two reasons: To return it to its owner and because it was considered a hazard to navigation.

After they pulled the zombie onto the boat, the crew did what they would normally do in a “man overboard” incident, which includes CPR, but they made light of the situation as the man overboard was in this case just a mannequin.

While the Coast Guard has pulled a lot of strange things out of Lake Michigan, Haraf said this zombie has to be one of the strangest.
