Chicago FD water rescue, 8-24-16

This from Josh Boyajian:

Wednesday afternoon, the MFAO gave out a water response to 33rd and Kedzie for a person that jumped off the bridge. Battalion 14 arrived on scene and confirmed the incident. I arrived about 5 min after the initial call came in. Crews were throwing ladders down the side of the bridge to the bank of the canal. Within 10 minutes, Squad 1, 6-8-7, and 6-8-1 arrived with divers ready to go. Dive Coordinator 6-8-6 directed Helicopter 6-8-1 and it’s divers into the last known spot where the person went in. 6-8-1 deployed two divers, and within a couple minutes, found the victim and brought him ashore.

This from Steve Redick:

Normally I get much closer to the rescue demo at the air and water show. Since my vantage point was different I was able to get a unique but distant view of the air-sea rescue chopper maneuvering with the city skyline as a backdrop … pretty cool …
