DULUTH – A 31-year-old man drowned in the St. Louis River on Wednesday after authorities said he tried to save his daughter and another child who had gone underwater off Duluth's Boy Scout Landing on the western edge of town.

The body of Kevin Ingles of Superior, Wis., was recovered at 5:20 p.m. following a three-hour search, the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office said.
