Two Teenagers Rescued after Kayaks Overturn in FDL River

25-May-2020

Two teenagers from Fond du Lac were rescued from the Fond du Lac River after their kayaks overturned in the river Monday afternoon.

 

According to a press release, the Fond du Lac County Communications Center received a 911 call about the incident around 1:15 pm Monday. Reports indicate a 30-year-old man, along with two 13-year-olds – all of them from Fond du Lac – were kayaking on the river when their kayaks overturned in turbulent water.

 

Authorities say the group got their kayaks back upright, with the man able to get out of the river and go to a home on Shraven Circle where he called for help. The 13-year-olds continued downstream in their kayaks, and at the time of the 911 call, it was unknown where the kids were or if they needed help.

 

The release says phone contact was made with the teens just before 1:45 pm, and sheriff’s deputies were able to get to them just north of Rogersville Road on the bank of the river.

 

No one was injured in the incident, as the teens were wearing personal flotation devices.

 

Also assisting at the scene were North Fond du Lac Fire and Ambulance and a warden from the Wisconsin DNR.
