5 Iowa residents rescued on Vermillion

Posted by wlpo on June 27, 2015

Would you go rafting in these kind of river conditions? 5 people from the Quad Cities tried the Vermillion Sunday afternoon  and found trouble. Sgt. Hank Frazier is with Conservation Police. Frazier said all were safely rescued by the MABAS 25 rescue team including Tonica, Streator and Oglesby.

    Frazier did not have their names, but said they hit something in the river around 12:45pm and overturned. One person was rescued on a far bank and the others off a small island in the river. No citations will be issued and alcohol was not involved. All are over age 21.
