Success - Article sent! close

Rescue crews searched a Naperville pond Saturday after someone reported seeing an arm waving in the water, but they came up empty-handed.

Firefighters responded to the retention pond near 95th Street and Skylane Drive at 10:50 a.m. for a report of "an arm of a drowning person waving in the water," officials said. A water-rescue team in protective suits searched the pond surface and below while police went door-to-door to see if anyone was missing.

"After an extensive search, (crews) determined that there was no one in the water," Bureau Chief Kevin Lyne of the Naperville Fire Department said in a news release.

The search involved 25 members of the fire department and several police officers, according to the release. No injuries were reported.
