NE Iowa Sheriff urging common sense after third water rescue

Decorah, Iowa – One Northeast Iowa Sheriff is warning residents to be cautious while out on the waters this summer.

Winneshiek County Sheriff Dan Marx released a statement Tuesday saying “we’re not off to a good start” after his department assisted in the third water rescue of the season on Saturday.

“People need to be mindful to the fact of the river conditions are constantly changing and can become quickly treacherous,” Marx said.

He added he wants persons to enjoy the recreation resources his county has to offer but urges common sense.

The sheriff’s office said two missing kayakers were reported near Kendallville along the river.  The kayaks had capsized, but the individuals were rescued.
