In typical fireman tradition, Crystal Lake resident Joel Arnier, fishing on a day off from his Addison Fire Department job, rushed to the rescue when he saw a mother holding her oxygen-starved daughter on the Fox River’s bank.
Joel Arnier got public credit the modest public servant deserved on television last night.
And on the front page of the Chicago Sun-Times.
The article inside was as big that Michael Sneed’s column and ran right next to it.
It says the 20-month old was taken first to Centengra Hospital in McHenry, then to Rockford Memorial Hospital.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office call DCFS, the Department of Children and Family Services, but said there would be no criminal investigation.
