River trip ends with a boat flying into a tree near Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on May 11, 2015

A day on the river for a Sheridan couple ended with them being thrown from their boat.

Conservation Police Sgt. Hank Frazier says Michael and Rhonda Arend were on the Illinois River late Sunday afternoon a half mile from the docks when they hit a log. Their boat went airborne, ejecting them from the boat. The boat ended up in a tree.

Michael Arend was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa while Rhonda was given some tickets.
