Fire Department divers are searching for two people who reportedly fell into the water from a canoe near the dam at Willow Road and Forestway Drive in Northfield [MAP/SAT] on Sunday. Arlington Heights Fire Department sent Squad 443 with divers and a dive master.

UPDATE: Stanton Schuman, age 92. died in the water. His body was recovered after about 5 hours of search in the area of water known as the Skokie Lagoons. Schuman’s son and a dog made it to shore after their canoe tipped, but Schuman’s son reported that his father went underwater and did not resurface from the water. Firefighters reported that bottom of the Skokie Lagoons water was very hazardous to divers with tree branch obstructions and other obstructions.
