ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A man is being evaluated at the hospital after walking on the Rock River this morning.

Emergency responders say the man appearing to be in his late 40’s walked on the ice down the center of the river near the 200 block of Prairie Street. He then walked to the docks near the Lombardi club where he was taken into police custody. Two fire engines, an ambulance, and four divers were at the scene.
