Dive box in Wauconda, 4-19-19 (more)

Excerpts from the lakecountyjournal.com:

About 7:20 p.m. on Friday night, two boys were in paddle boats on Bangs Lake in Wauconda. They had been playing in the neighborhood when they came across the boats and decided to go out onto the water, officials said.

The two panicked because of the strong wind and rough water conditions, and they jumped into the lake to swim back to shore, police said. Nearby fishermen overheard screaming, pulled an 11-year-old boy out of the water and took him to shore. First responders Fire department divers could not initially locate the second boy, who was identified as Geraldo Rodriguez, 9.

The Wauconda Fire District called for additional divers and sonar technicians. The effort was switched from rescue to recovery about 10:30 p.m. Friday and continued until about  3 a.m..

The sonar team found the boy’s body around noon Saturday near the deepest part of the lake, which is about 30 feet deep. The water was about 45 degrees, and the surviving child is being treated for hypothermia.

Crews from Lake Zurich, Barrington, Long Grove, Round Lake, Fox Lake, Countryside, Grayslake, McHenry Township, Crystal Lake, Buffalo Grove, Lake Forest, Libertyville, Mundelein, Cary, Nunda Rural, Gurnee, Newport, Huntley, Fox River Grove, Richmond, and Wonder Lake assisted during the incident.

Burn down in McHenry, IL 3-15-19

This from Steve Redick:

Took this in on Friday (3/15/19). A clubhouse/restaurant at the Chapel Hill Golf Club. Unusual to see a building this large used as a burn down. I believe they had been conducting numerous evolutions here previously and Friday was the burn down to aid in the demolition of the building. I don’t believe anything will be erected in its place. No real firefighting operations to see but I did get to observe some amazing fire behavior and conditions. The collapse of the front entrance overhang was unusual, but I missed it and only got the aftermath. It was interesting to see the tanker setup although it really wasn’t utilized much. The video and all the images can be seen here:
