Hoping: Toufue Vang Jumps Into A River To Save Nephew

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

A search resumed Monday in the St. Croix River for a 21-year-old Coon Rapids, Minn. man who went missing after jumping into the water to rescue his nephew on Sunday.
Calvin Vang, 11, tripped on a rock and fell into the water while fishing at a scenic boat landing near Taylors Falls at about 6 p.m. on Sunday. One Good Samaritan jumped off a 30-foot cliff to rescue him, and the boy's uncle, Toufue Vang, 21, also jumped in after the boy. Although Calvin was safely rescued and returned to shore, his uncle did not come up.

The full story.
