Kayaker rescued from Fordham Dam

Saved by the Jacket

A video taken by the Rockford Fire Department shows rescue teams pulling a kayaker to safety from the Fordham Dam.

The video shows how strong the currents actually are.  So much, that they exhausted the 46-year old victim fighting for his life in the cold water.  He held onto the line the witnesses threw out to him, until fire rescue teams arrived to the scene.
