Prayers to the families.

The pictures on WGN depict wreckage in the Des Plaines River.

Very sad.

Anyone know who the crew was? I worked there in the 90s and am curious if I knew the guys. My thoughts and prayers go out to their families and friends. Smooth sailing west boys.

Yeah, I know the crew, you probably didn't know them they had both been hired within the last 6-7 years. The captain was a good friend of mine though.
