7/26/17 NORTH AURORA – 2 Sisters rescued from Fox River near Lippold Park – Video by Dave Weaver

DETAILS: Two young adult sisters had to be rescued by North Aurora firefighters after the inflatable boat they were in collapsed on the Fox River near Lippold Park in Batavia. The girls who had been visiting the park were spotted hanging onto a tree that had fallen over in the Fox River next to an island adjacent to Lippold Park at the south end of Batavia at 2001 S. River St. (IL-25). The North Aurora battalion chief said the girls were lucky that witnesses saw the incident unfolding and called 9-1-1. The sisters were described as losing their grip shortly before being rescued by  firefighters using the North Aurora Fire Department’s Zodiac rescue boat. The girls were brought to shore behind the North Aurora Village Hall where they were evaluated by medics before being released at the scene.
