Newport youth, Minneapolis man rescued from Vermillion River
A 23-year-old Minneapolis man and a 16-year-old Newport youth were rescued from the fast-moving Vermillion River Sunday afternoon.
Hastings Police, Fire and Ambulance Service, Dakota County deputies and a Minnesota State Patrol trooper responded to the area of the river near the 18th Street bridge at about 2:30 p.m.
The two came to Hastings to swim in the river, but apparently did not realize how high or swift the river was.
