A young boy inner-tubing behind a boat went under the water which prompted his sister and their step-father to try finding him in the water. The man was able to get the boy back in the boat, but he then went under. The kids, their mother, and two dogs made it back to shore. Firefighters were paged to the river near Memorial Park in Wausau around 2 p.m. Thursday.

The Marathon County Dive Team was also brought in. The wind conditions made it dangerous for the search. It was challenging for the dive team under the water, and they were using sonar equipment. A helicopter was paged at the beginning of the search, but was called off due to the windy conditions, which is also why a drone was not used in the search. The search was called off at 9:15PM Thursday. Search crews will be back Friday morning at 7AM. WGWI-PUBLICATIONS will follow this situation and bring you any updates on our Facebook Page Search  WGWI-PUBLICATIONS.

Waterloo (ON) firefighters were dispatched to a 4” gas main that had been hit by a back hoe, June 12, 9:10 am, at King St North, and Hickory Street. P1, A1, P3, and Car 23 responded to the call. Firefighters evacuated area businesses and homes and had both universities tweet out warnings to students to stay clear of the area. Area schools were also asked to advise students to avoid the area.

Union gas was called to shut the gas down. They had difficulty accessing shut offs, and had one valve that malfunctioned. Union Gas advised command that they were going to have to dig up the road in a number of areas to access the main line as well as four other lines that were feeding it.

Box 690 responded to the call on this information as the temperature with the humidex factored in was 100 Fahrenheit. Command advised to set up rehab one block north of the leak. Photos and short video shot an hour into the call.

While a firefighter/paramedic was inside the car with the patient, others cleared the glass panels before cutting the passenger side posts and folding the car’s roof down onto the ground. The driver was removed and transported to a hospital. The other vehicle’s driver was unharmed. Arlington Heights Engine 4, Buffalo Grove Tower 25, Ambulance 25, and Battalion 4 were at the scene.

Ten people were injured, one critically, in a high-speed, five-car collision on Interstate 95 near the 64 mile marker southbound in Colleton County SC, Monday afternoon 22-May at 13:41. All vehicles were traveling southbound when several collided causing a Nissan Altima to drive under the trailer of a tractor-trailer truck. The car became wedged under the trailer and the rear tandem wheels drove up over the car crushing the front seat passenger in the car.

The 45-year old Florida woman was conscious, but suffered multiple traumatic injuries. The wheels of the trailer where on top of her legs. A military medic stopped and treated the woman prior to Fire-Rescue arriving. The southbound lanes of I-95 were blocked due to the wreckage and debris. Heavy traffic backed up for several miles, hampering emergency units from reaching the accident. Once on scene, Fire-Rescue units began treating the injured and stabilizing the tractor trailer and Nissan.

The female patient was found to be heavily entrapped in the wreckage with little access. There was approximately three feet of intrusion into the passenger compartment. Firefighter-paramedics treated her in the car and used Holmatro rescue tools to remove the driver’s side doors and roof. Other crewmembers built a box crib under the rear axles of the trailer, then used small hydraulic jacks and Holmatro high-pressure air bags to lift the trailer approximately 18 inches off of the car. A winch on a fire department vehicle was used to pull the car from under the trailer.

The patient remained trapped under the door and dash which was crushed down on her lower extremities. Crews rigged chains to the door and a nearby guard rail support, then used Holmatro spreaders to pull the door off of the patient. Another set of spreaders was used to displace the dash to free the patient. After 49 minutes, she was extricated with spinal precautions, then transported emergent to the trauma center at Trident Medical Center in Medic 26. No helicopters could fly due to poor weather conditions.

Two other patients were transported with non-life threatening injuries to Colleton Medical Center by Medic 9. The remaining patients were treated at the scene for various traumatic injuries, but did not require ambulance transportation. Southbound traffic on I-95 was backed up for eight miles. The SC Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

 Engine 5, Engine 26, Rescue 1, Medic 1, Medic 9, Medic 26, Car 105, Car 109, Car 110, Car 111, Car 116, and Car 118 responded. Battalion Chief Scott Feather served as Incident Commander.

Kitchener (ON)  fire dispatch was receiving multiple calls for a deck fire May 17 2017 at 18:15. P2, A2, P3, R1, and Car 23 were dispatched to a possible structure fire at 159 Lancaster Street East, reporting a deck on fire in the rear of the structure. Dispatch advised they had had five 911 calls and the phone was ringing in the background. Car 23 requested an additional pumper enroute to the fire.

P2 reported the rear of the house was fully involved on arrival. Two 1.5” and one 2.5” line was pulled to attack the fire that started on the second floor enclosed porch and extended into the roof. Firefighters knocked the bulk of the fire down in ten minutes. I had just left the Woolwich Township call when this fire was dispatched. I arrived at this scene after the fire was knocked down and was assisted by other Box 690 members to provide rehab. This was our third fire of the day, having provided rehab for a large industrial grinding machine fire in North Dumfries Township a few hours earlier.
