Water Rescue Turns Into A False Alarm

Posted on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 16:27 PM

Some excitement on the Kam River this afternoon at the Mountdale Avenue boat launch.

It happened just before 4 o'clock when Thunder Bay Fire and Rescue was told about a possible water rescue.

Captain Robert Di Paolo says the call originated with the city police.

He says they received an email from a boater who said his propeller hit something under the water which his sonar indicated might be a truck.

Di Paolo says nothing was found after a search was done of the area. (Staff photo)
