Two rescued by helicopter from Eldorado Marsh

FOND DU LAC COUNTY (CBS 58) – Two people were rescued after getting lost in the Eldorado Marsh in Fond du Lac County Sunday evening.

According to the sheriff’s office, two people became disoriented while kayaking on the Fond du Lac River. One of the men called 911 and told authorities they had lost track of where they were. The Fond du Lac County Communications Center was able to pinpoint their location from the 911 call. Due to the terrain of the marsh, the Eldorado Fire Department was unable to reach the two men.

A Wisconsin National Guard helicopter was called and safely removed the men from the marsh. They were both evaluated by paramedics and released.
