Rock River Rescue

A boat with six people on board including two children flipped over on the Rock River last night. It happened around eleven o'clock near the Whitman Street Bridge. Fire fighters quickly responded, jumping into the water and rescuing all six. But family members also said not everyone rushed to the rescue.

While firefighters and some boaters came running, others did not and just passed her family yelling for help in the water.
