A father from Superior is dead after drowning in the St. Louis River while trying to help save two children struggling in the water. One of those children was his own.
“There were multiple agencies participating in the rescue. Good communication, good coordination. Unfortunately, the outcome is not what we or anyone else wanted,” said Duluth Assistant Fire Chief Dennis Edwards.
This drowning comes just days after a near-drowning in Lake Superior off Park Point this weekend.
Multiple first responding agencies were out in Duluth this afternoon following the drowning of a man who tried to save young two girls.
31-year old Kevin Ingles of Superior drowned Wednesday afternoon in an attempt to save two young girls in the St. Louis River, one of which was Ingles’ 8-year old daughter.
