(SOUTH DAKOTA) Siouxland is mourning the deaths of two people who jumped into the Big Sioux River at Falls Park in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to save a 6-year-old boy. Rescue crews recovered the body of 28-year-old Lyle Eagle Tail from Sioux Falls on Saturday afternoon. They pulled out the body of 16-year-old Madison Wallace from Vermillion about 24 hours earlier.
