Centennial Beach Rescue
Last night, a boy was rescued after jumping from a diving board at Centennial Beach. The Naperville Park District reported around 5:45 p.m. the 14-year-old boy jumped into 15 feet of water and didn’t resurface. Lifeguards responded and brought the boy onto the deck, and after almost a minute of performing CPR, the boy vomited and paramedics arrived. The boy was conscious and breathing when taken to Edward Hospital and is reported to be in good condition. The beach closed shortly after the incident and remained closed through the rest of the evening.
