What started as a winter vacation getaway turned into a struggle to survive for a Minnesota deputy.
Last month, 39-year-old Jeff Edwards was vacationing with his girlfriend and other friends in Ixtapa, Mexico. While swimming in the ocean, he got caught in a wave and was slammed into the ocean floor.
A 38-year-old man had to be taken to the hospital early Saturday morning after an assault at a northwestern Minnesota campground and one person is in custody in connection with the incident, according to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities in Grant County, which is in northwestern Minnesota near Fergus Falls, are advising no travel in the area due to poor bad road conditions and poor visibility.
Authorities say a 63-year-old man was found dead Wednesday while trying to put out a fire in a field near his home in far northwestern Minnesota.
