Walk, Picnic Held For Man Who Drowned At Falls Park
Lyle Eagle Tail


More than 100 people came out for a walk and picnic to honor a man who drowned trying to rescue a six-year-old boy at Falls Park.

The walk began at the State Penitentiary and ended at the banks for the Big Sioux River where 28-year-old Lyle Eagle Tail went under when he was trying to rescue a six-year-old boy back in mid-March.

The walk was followed by a ceremony, with Native American dancing and also a picnic.

The Dakota 38 group and the Native American Council of Tribes organized the event.

Eagle Tail and 16-year-old Madison Wallace both drowned at Falls Park trying to save Wallace’s young brother.

Coming up tonight on KELOLAND News, Perry Groten finds out how these walkers are remembering Eagle Tail’s heroism.
