Two rescued after boat capsizes below the Oregon dam
Two people escaped serious injury Saturday morning but their dog is presumed to have perished when the boat they were fishing from capsized in the Rock River below the Oregon dam.
Boaters Jessica Long, 26, and Nathan Long, 31, both of Streator, were pulled from the river by two men Tom Olmstrom, 42, and Brian Gavin, 41, both of DeKalb, who were canoeing on the river when the incident occurred on March 30 at around 10:20 a.m.
"The boat sunk and two people and their dog ended up in the river," said Oregon Fire Chief Don Heller. "Two people in a canoe were just paddling up the river and they happened to see them and they helped get them to shore."
