Hastings firefighter/paramedics rescued a teenage boy from the Vermillion River Saturday evening, shortly before 8 p.m.

"When we found him, he was in the river down by the Ramsey Mill ruins," said Fire and EMS Director Mike Schutt.


Responders are unsure how, exactly, the teen got into the river in the first place because of conflicting reports. He was with a group of friends, some of whom had also been in the water but were able to get out on their own.
