VIDEO: Water rescues near dams can be particularly harrowing as the churning waters known as “the boil” can pull in people and rescuers.
The Elgin Fire Department is painfully familiar with that, after two of its own died in 1974 during a rescue near the city’s dam in the Fox River. The department now has a new tool expected to enhance safety, a Waterwog 3 rescue boat made by Creature Craft that works well near low-head dams, fire officials said.
