Rescue boat capsizes in Rock River while trying to recover body


Emergency crews were on scene this morning near the intersection of South Main Street and Beltline Road on reports of a body discovered in the Rock River.

The body was found around 10 a.m. by a local fisherman. Officials at the scene said the body is too badly decomposed to determine if it is male or female.

A rescue boat tipped over during the recovery operation, prompting a water rescue operation.
