High waves close lakefront path

Februay 27, 2009 (CHICAGO) Water has been pouring on the running and bike paths along Chicago's lakefront.

Paths from Lake Street to North Avenue were closed late Friday afternoon.

Earlier, a bicyclist was knocked down by the waves. That person came away without any injuries. But the incident helped convince authorities to close the bike and running path as a precaution.
