At 1:23 p.m. on June 30, 2019, the St. Charles Fire Department was dispatched to a reported river rescue just north of the Fox River Dam. Fire units were on the scene by 1:24 p.m. and found a disabled boat with three people inside approximately 1000 yards north of the dam. The anchor line for the boat was not holding and the strong winds from the approaching storm were blowing the boat towards the dam.
At 4:41 p.m. 6/24/19, the St. Charles Fire Department was dispatched to a reported river rescue with a child and an adult trapped on a pylon underneath the railroad trestle bridge close to Salerno’s Restaurant: 320 N. Second Street. Multiple 911 calls were received by Tri Com and an exact location was given for the victims. Fire units were on the scene within one minute and found one adult and two children standing on a pier underneath the bridge next to a paddle boat. All three had personal floatation devices.
Subsequent to family being notified, we are releasing the identity of the man who died in this single vehicle crash. He has been identified as:
