This is so sad but he died a great hero for sure. The news article states he pulled the 2 children from the undertow to only get pulled under himself. BD
Dr. Donald Liu, a pediatric surgeon at University of Chicago Comer Children's Hospital, dedicated himself to helping children.
On Sunday morning, Liu died while saving two youths struggling in the waters of Lake Michigan off a small beach in Michigan about 90 miles from Chicago, authorities said.
Liu, 50, of Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, was on a weekend getaway in Michigan when he noticed two children struggling, University of Chicago Hospitals spokesman John Easton said. "Two kids had been caught in a current, and he went out and saved them both."
