JCSO Rescues Several Monday Morning Near Waltonville From Boats

(WALTONVILLE, IL) — Jefferson County Sherriff’s Department responded earlier Monday morning to the Waltonville Access Area to reports of a boat flipped over and a rescue scenario. Devin Eubanks had contacted authorities to advise them that his boat had flipped and his friend and he were stranded with one of them on top of the boat and another down the bank. While tending to the rescue of these individuals, authorities also assisted four others who were on a hunting trip in a stalled boat on the lake. All were successfully retrieved from the water without major reported injuries. One boat was left in the water with currents too strong to retrieve at the time of report.
