Dive box in Bolingbrook, 11-25-22

This from Daniel Hynd:

At around 12:20pm on 11-25-22, the Bolingbrook Fire Department received a call for a vehicle that went into the water at the boat launch at Whalon Lake. 911 calls reported possibly two occupants in the vehicle. The driver self extricated from the vehicle and was rescued to shore by PD prior to FD arrival. Bolingbrook FD arrived on scene to find the vehicle fully submerged about 100 feet off shore. A dive box was requested shortly before arrival. Divers from MABAS 16 departments searched the water and were able to locate the vehicle. A boat and a drone were deployed, and sonar was used to aid in the search. About 3 hours after FD arrival, the vehicle was removed from the water. No other occupants were found inside the vehicle. The driver was transported by the Naperville FD to an area hospital.; #BolingbrookFD; #DanielHynd; #diveincident;
