From our sister site The Waterland Blog:

There was a huge police/emergency search and rescue mission for an elderly man who apparently jumped from the fishing pier near the Des Moines Marina on Tuesday night, Nov. 21.

Police say that a man in his 80s was observed on the pier by more than one witness, apparently arguing with someone on a cell phone.

He then was seen jumping off the pier and into the water.

“This required a multi-agency response to locate the subject,” Master Sgt. David Mohr told The Waterland Blog.
