A 69-year-old Fairmont man appears to have died Wednesday while trying to swim across a lake in McLeod County.
Crews pulled a swimmer who was earlier reported missing from a lake in Shakopee, Minn. Friday afternoon. According to Scott County authorities, a call to rescue crews reporting the missing swimmer came in at about 1:45 p.m.
It’s quite an accomplishment to set a state record in a sport, but how about doing it as an eighth grader? Sartell-St. Stephen swimmer Marisa Wood, now a junior, did just that.
Carlton County police said rescuers found the body of the 24-year-old man who drowned Monday afternoon after the St. Louis River pulled him downstream.
