SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Sioux Falls Police have not made an arrest in last Friday’s rescue of a man who was pushed off a ledge along the banks of the Big Sioux River.
Officer Sam Clemens says the 41-year-old transient fell about 18 feet into the rocky, river bank and cut his head.
Clemens says the victim and a female got into an argument and she pushed him backward. He landed on large rocks that shore up the river bank. He says there were several witnesses but they did not know who the female was. He says everyone involved was extremely intoxicated.
Clemens did not know what sparked the argument.
The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries.
