Plane Crashes onto Frozen Rock River, 1-20-18

This from Dave Weaver:

1/20/18 GRAND DETOUR – Plane Crashes onto Frozen Rock River after Downing Power Line; Fox Lake FPD Airboat Responds to Assist Dixon Rural FPD on Interdivisional Box Alarm – Video by Dave Weaver
LIVE NEWS MONITORING:
DETAILS: At 12:36 PM on Saturday, January 20, a pilot struck a power line before crash landing onto the frozen Rock River in Grand Detour, IL near the border of Lee and Ogle counties, north of Dixon. The Dixon Rural Fire Prot. Dist., which is in MABAS Division 18 (Ogle County) requested the specialized assistance of an airboat from the Fox Lake Fire Prot. Dist. The Fox Lake FPD is in MABAS Division 4 (Lake County). The airboat crew helped ComEd workers assess the damaged power line which was entangled with the aircraft. The airboat crew also helped with the recovery of the damaged aircraft which was tugged to shore by cable. Because of the unique nature of Fox Lake’s airboat, and their crews’ familiarity with ice incidents, their specialized asset and operational skills helped bring this incident to a safe, efficient conclusion.
