Woodbury Man Dies After Being Flooded Out Of Tunnel
After two men's curiousity took them into a tunnel for some photographs on Sunday south of the Marshall Avenue bridge in Saint Paul, a storm filled the enclosure with rainwater and forced them into the river, one of the men died, reported KSTP TV.
Ian Talty, 30, of Woodbury was pulled down the river while his friend, Nick Breid, 29, was able to pull himself ashore, according to Kare11.
Members of the Minneapolis Rowing Club heard the two mens' cries and called 911, according to Kare11.
A member of the rowing club, along with a Saint Paul Police officer, searched for Talty in a private boat; they found and pulled him to shore near Mississippi River Blvd. and Stanford Ave., where medics performed CPR then transported him to the Hennepin County Medical Center. He died later at HCMC, reported Kare11.
