Wisconsin Dells PD Look for Man Who Jumped Into the Wisconsin River
A man who reportedly jumped off a bridge into the Wisconsin River on Saturday night has not been located, according to a release from the Wisconsin Dells Police Department. Police say they received reports that a person, later identified as 23-year-old Alexander McNair, of Wisconsin Dells, jumped off the Kilbourn Bridge, which is located on Highway 13 near the downtown area of the Wisconsin Dells. Officers located McNair in the water between the bridge and the Kilbourn Dam, but lost sight of him moments later. Due to weather, nighttime conditions and river currents, a thorough water search was unable to be conducted. On Sunday morning, the Columbia County Sheriff’s Dive Team assisted the Wisconsin Dells PD, the Kilbourn Fire Department, the DNR, and Alliant Energy personnel in conducting a water search around the dam but McNair was not found. The Wisconsin Dells PD says more information will be released as it becomes available.
