Email

A young man, believed to be in his early 20s, survived a bad dive Sunday night with help from onlookers at Lester Park.

Although the identity of the man has not yet been released, Duluth Assistant Fire Chief Richard Mattson said a young man was jumping at a section of the Amity Creek known locally as "the deeps." He was jumping from a height of about 25 feet when he became incapacitated.

"It sounds like he did a face plant," Mattson said.
