Iowa Angler Dies After Falling Into Yellowstone River

Frank Jaszcz, 65, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was fishing in the Yellowstone River Thursday near Mud Volcano. Around noon, he lost his footing while attempting to walk out to a small island in the middle of the river and was quickly carried away by the strong current. Rangers, responding to a call from a witness to the incident, discovered the man nearly six miles downstream, lying face down in the water along the river bank north of Elk Antler Creek. Members of the park’s technical rescue team, who are trained in swiftwater rescue, pulled him from the river. After he was examined by paramedics, Jaszcz was declared dead at the scene. The accident is being investigated.
