A woman from southwestern Minnesota who fell while walking in the St. Croix River over the weekend and was hospitalized has died, authorities in Wisconsin said.
Staci M. Meehan, 40, of Balaton, was identified Monday by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office as the drowning victim.
Meehan and family members were camping on an island south of the Osceola landing when she went underwater Saturday afternoon. People at the scene administered CPR before emergency personnel arrived.
Meehan was taken to a nearby hospital and then transferred to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, where she died Sunday morning.
