    Teens Rescued From Flooded Fox River

    On June 15, 2011 at approximately 6:40 am, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office
    recieved a call from one of it’s citizens, who reported hearing someone yelling
    for help, just below a bridge, near their home, located off a county gravel
    road, approximately 2.5 miles northeast of Kahoka, Missouri.

    Upon
    arrival, two teens, one 16 and the other 18 years old, both of Clark County,
    Missouri, were spotted clinging to trees, along the Fox River’s bank. Clark
    County Rescue, Missouri Conservation Agents, Keokuk Water Rescue Patrol, and the
    Clark County Ambulance were all dispatched to the scene to assist the Clark
    County Sheriff’s Office. A plan was formulated and executed, and at
    approximately 8:55 am, both subjects were pulled from the raging
    river.

    Both individuals were immediately evaluated for injuries,
    where one was released on the scene, without serious medical injury and the
    other transported to Keokuk Area Hospital for further medical
    evaluation.

    As the Clark County Sheriff, I would like to thank all
    the agencies that assisted in the rescue and again I was impressed to see the
    outcome of the different agencies, working together, to accomplish an important
    mission, with positive results.

    I want to ask the public to
    please, stay away from fast moving/high waters. We were very lucky this
    time!
