Search For 10-Year-Old Boy Ends Tragically

Hudson, South Dakota — What began as a rescue operation on the Big Sioux River Saturday ended with the recovery of a child’s body from the river.

According to the Lincoln County, South Dakota Sheriff’s Office social media, first responders from multiple counties in southeast South Dakota and northwest Iowa were searching the river Saturday for a 10-year-old boy who had disappeared.

Sadly, the rescue turned into a recovery operation, with the young boy’s body being recovered from the river by a dive team late Saturday night.

Union County authorities say that out of respect for the child’s family, his name has not been released, and are asking for prayers for the boy’s family, as well as the first responders involved in the incident.
