The coronavirus threatens those who need care the most and strains networks providing help
Minneapolis firefighters were called to drag a lost man out of the Mississippi River on Feb. 8. According to emergency responders, the man was trying to walk home in the early morning hours when he began following Google Maps walking directions. At some point, the man walked onto the frozen river, likely misunderstanding directions to cross on the Stone Arch Bridge near the city’s downtown. As a result of his wrong turn, the unidentified man fell through ice and got stuck in the frigid river. Emergency workers treated him for mild hypothermia.
