On August 10, 2011, a worker and her husband were working as camp hosts for a campground at Moraine View State Park in Illinois. There was one other camp host as well. The worker complained of dizziness and shortness of breath. Her husband was transporting her in a private vehicle from their home and workplace in Moraine View State Park to the doctor, when she collapsed in the vehicle. She was taken to the park office, from which emergency medical technicians were called. An ambulance was dispatched from LeRoy, Illinois. Prior to the arrival of the ambulance; the worker was given CPR. Attempts to use an automated external defibrillator were unsuccessful, partially due to lack of training on the removal of the backing on the electrode pads.

The camp hosts at Illinois state parks were considered seasonal employees of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
