Pleasure boat strikes object; Six people need rescue

NT Staff

 LACON — Henry, Marshall County, Lacon and Chillicothe emergency crews responded just after sundown on the Illinois River after a 31-foot yacht reportedly struck a tree and was taking on water rapidly.

Within half an hour, Marshall County Sheriff’s Department received word that the occupants of the boat were on shore. Two adults and four children had donned life preservers while waiting for rescue, and at one point, the Coast Guard was called to tell barge captains to stop and avoid making wake.

A Marshall County dispatcher did not have details on the accident, saying the people were OK. Lacon-Sparland Ambulance and Henry, Lacon and Chillicothe fire departments responded.
