CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Lightning struck a man on Whalon Lake in Naperville and several buildings in the Chicago area. CBS 2 Chicago’s Charlie De Mar reports.

Naperville police and firefighter/paramedics responded at 1:30 p.m. Monday September 3, 2018 to a report of a person struck by lightning at Whalon Lake, 1490 Royce Road. An engine and ambulance were dispatched to the scene, but when information was received that a person may still be in the water, the alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Dive Box Alarm by 1:38 p.m. Response to the Dive Box included Naperville’s Water Rescue Team along with water rescue teams from the Bolingbrook Fire Department, Downers Grove Fire Department, Darien Woodridge Fire Protection District, Lisle Woodridge Fire Protection District, and the Warrenville Fire Protection District.

Naperville Fire and Emergency Medical Crews from Fire Station 2 located at Naperville and Bailey road arrived on scene within 6 minutes of the initial 911 call, and began trying to locate the victim with the help of Will County Forest Preserve Police and bystanders on scene. Crews quickly located the victim face up in the water approximately 10 to 15 feet off shore and without delay, sent a rescue swimmer to retrieve him. Once the victim was brought to shore and evaluated, it was determined that he was pulseless and not breathing. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, advanced airway management, and cardiac defibrillation efforts were rapidly initiated and the victim was transported to Edward Hospital in Naperville. The patient’s pulse and breathing were restored by fire and EMS crews and Edward Hospital medical personnel.

Concurrently, the emergency call involved a victim with a possible lower extremity fracture at the same location. That victim was quickly located by Fire and Emergency Medical crews from the Bolingbrook Fire Department who arrived on the scene shortly after Naperville companies. That patient was treated and transported to Edward Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Water rescue teams remained on scene until it was assured that all victims were accounted for.

An investigation of the incident by the Will County Forest Preserve Police, the Naperville Police Department, and the Naperville Park District Police determined that a father and son were fishing when the father, age 33, was struck by lightning and fell into the water. His 13-year-old son went to call for help, but fell and injured his leg. His son was able to get help from a cyclist and a jogger who then called 911.

Naperville Fire Department acknowledged that the citizen that called 911, the quick action of Naperville Fire and EMS crews, and the assistance of mutual aid response agencies saved the life of the 33-year-old father.
