People and dog safe after canoe overturned

Posted by wlpo on July 5, 2013

          One second you’re upright and the next you’re in the water- that’s what it’s like being in a canoe.  Everyone, including a dog, is okay after their canoe overturned on the Illinois River near the Starved Rock dam.

          It happened minutes before 1pm Friday.  The people on the canoe and their dog were helped out of the water by someone in a pontoon boat.  Utica Firefighters and area water rescues were called out to help but weren’t needed.
