WILMINGTON DAM, Illinois (Fox 32 News) - Rescue crews in suburban Chicago have a new tool to help people trapped in dangerous water.

The inflatable boat has a rollcage which can handle treacherous conditions without putting rescuers in danger.

The boat was recently tested at the Wilmington Dam near Chicago. A 35-year-old woman drowned there last month.
