A man and his dog are OK after a close call on a lake in eastern Illinois.

Shane Cassady and his dog Koda were swept over the Lake Charleston Spillway Wednesday after they jumped out of Cassady's disabled boat.

They survived the churning water at the bottom of the spillway.

The accident happened near a memorial to others who've died at the spot.

Charleston is about 50 miles south of Champaign.
