Geneva officials search Fox River after report of person 'jumping' into river to avoid train

GENEVA – Geneva fire and police officials conducted a search in the Fox River late Monday and early Tuesday, in response to a report of a person "jumping" from the Union Pacific Railway trestle into the Fox River to avoid being struck by an oncoming train, according to a news release issued by the city of Geneva.

According to the release, emergency officials responded to a report at 10:53 p.m. Monday. The release stated that the original call was made by a Metra train representative. Firefighters searched in the river, and police officers checked the river banks, but, after a two-hour search, no victim was located.

According to the release, there will be no additional search efforts unless further details develop. Anyone with information can call the Geneva Police Department at 630-232-4736.
