Kayaker goes over dam, dies in Fox River
The Associated Press




 

GENEVA, Ill. (AP) — Authorities say a Bloomington man died during a weekend kayaking accident in northern Illinois.

The 26-year-old man was in a kayak on the Fox River near Geneva on Saturday when the boat went over a dam. One man was thrown from the kayak, while a second was stuck in the boat.

He was pulled from the water about two hours later and pronounced dead at the scene. The second man was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover.

Authorities had not released either man's name as of 6:30 a.m. Monday.

Authorities say the two were in Geneva with a group of friends for the kayaking trip. No one else was injured.

Geneva is about 35 miles west of Chicago.
