Lt. Dave McIntire tells the Argus Leader a fisherman who spotted the child jumped into the water, but the two began struggling in the river, prompting a second fisherman to jump in and rescue both before first responders arrived.

The child, whose age was not given, was taken to the hospital to be checked out, while the fishermen declined medical treatment.
