Large Kite Dropping Leads To Missouri River Search

Large Kite Dropping Leads To Missouri River Search
PIERRE, SD -

Authorities say a report of an object that fell from the sky resulted in a Missouri River search.

Ron Bren of the Pierre Rescue Squad said the object the caller couldn't quite distinguish when it fell into the marina because it was dusk ended up being a large tissue box kite.

Bren says his squad, members of the state Game, Fish and Parks Department and the Hughes County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene.

The station reports that a boat and jet ski were dispatched to the middle of the marina where the object had landed. Bren says a sheriff's deputy wearing a life jacket swam from shore to the object.

The kite had begun dissolving in the water, but a chunk was still on the surface.
