    Default STUPID....STUPID.....STUPID

    Just got back from a run and I have to share my experience.

    Dispatched to a car in the river (Mississippi) 4 miles north of town. Since it is duck season here in Illinois, I figured it was a hunter running late and having difficulties remembering to put his
    vehicle in park before he got out to push the boat off the trailer.

    Once on-scene, we discovered a $40,000 Caddy,
    with only the deck lid visable, about 40 feet from the bank. We go through the usual routine of searching for victims, etc.

    To make a long story short.....about the time we get the car pulled up onto the launch ramp, a duck hunter steps up and asks if anyone was in the car??.....and then goes on to state..."I SAW THE CAR THERE ABOUT 90 MINUTES AGO WHEN I WAS LEAVING THE DOCK TO GO HUNTING"

    Obviously he wasn't too concerned about the possibility of people being in the car 90 minutes earlier!!!!!!!


    HERE'S YOUR SIGN!!!!!
    Smile....it ain't all that bad!!!!!!!

    Did he see it 'there' in the water? or on the landing? If he left and it was in the water I'll bet your prosecuting attorney would like to talk with him.

    Sounds like you have some concerned people there like we do here, on the West side of the Miss. in Louisiana.

    Stay Safe!

    If it wasn't the hunter's car... I don't see where the prosecutor would have any need to talk to him. To my knowledge, there are no laws that require you to report a car in the water.
