NEWS FLASH: PLAYING BY A DAM IS DANGEROUS
It looks like plaintiffs' attorneys are the only ones not aware of the obvious, i.e. that playing by a dam is a bad idea.
Some plaintiff's personal injury lawyer has actually filed a lawsuit from a drowning at the Kankakee River last summer. The family is suing the City of Wilmington, among others.
A boy apparently fell into the water near the Wilmington dam. Fifteen people jumped in to save the boy. Two men died when the current pulled them under.
Apparently, according to plaintiffs' lawyers, all dams must be made for swimming. If not, somebody must pay.
