| No Comments

A homeless man died on Saturday after slipping into the Mississippi River, the Pioneer Press reported.

The man's friend alerted the police and firefighters after he saw him slip into the river, the Pioneer Press reported.

The incident occurred south of Gluek Riverside Park at Northeast 18th Avenue and Marshall Street Northeast, CBS reported.

The homeless man was intoxicated when he went into the river, the Star Tribune reported, but there is no clear indication of why he went in.

One of the firefighters recovered the body from about 15 feet away from shore, but the man had already drowned, according to CBS News.

Sheriff's spokesman Lisa Kiava said there is no indication of foul play, but "we investigate these things," CBS News reported.
