Boat overturns in Glen Carbon lake

GLEN CARBON, Ill. (KSDK) – Two girls are expected to be ok after their boat flipped over in Lake Hillcrest, prompting a water rescue.

They weren't too far from shore and in shallow water, but to be safe, the fire department used a paddle boat to pull them out of the cold water.

They were taken to a hospital in Maryville to be checked out. Their injuries were not serious or life-threatening, police say.
