Walk, Picnic to Honor Man Who Drowned

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A memorial walk and picnic are being held this coming week at Falls Park in Sioux Falls to honor a man who drowned while trying to save a young boy.

The Native American Council of Tribes is hosting the walk and picnic on Friday for 28-year-old Lyle Eagle Tail.

Eagle Tail drowned in March after jumping into the Big Sioux River at Falls Park after 6-year-old Garrett Martin Wallace fell into the frothing water or became obscured by the gathering foam. The boy later emerged from the water and was not injured.

The walk and picnic will start at 10 a.m.

People can donate items for the picnic by calling Valerie Weddell at 605-214-9085.
