Minnesota man presumed drowned in Saint Croix River

by

TAYLORS FALLS, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A search resumes today for a man missing and presumed drowned in the Saint Croix River on the Wisconsin-Minnesota border. Authorities said 21-year-old Tou Hu Vang of Coon Rapids Minnesota was swept away on Sunday in the river's swirling currents. He was trying to rescue his 11-year-old nephew Calvin, who was fishing when he slipped off a wet rock on the Minnesota side at Taylors Falls. A by-stander pulled the youngster to shore.

A full holiday of searching for Vang ended last evening, when a threat of severe weather emerged. Calvin said he felt terrified by the strong currents. Officials say the currents have been sped up by recent heavy rains -- and it has made the river especially dangerous for recreation.
