July 30, 2018

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Police say a homeless man came to the rescue of a woman and pulled her from the Mississippi River in Minneapolis.

Authorities say the man was camped under the Washington Avenue bridge when he heard the woman fall into the swirling currents of the river early Saturday. The man jumped in to save her. She was taken to a hospital for treatment.

The Star Tribune says first responders from Minneapolis offered the man shelter for the night, but he declined and returned to his camp.

No identities were released.
