ST. CLOUD — A 23-year-old St. Cloud man died Saturday after being rescued from a popular summer swimming spot at Quarry Park and Nature Preserve in Waite Park.
First responders from Stearns County, Waite Park and St. Cloud responded to a report of a drowning just after 5 p.m. Saturday at Quarry No. 2 at the park, according to a release issued Monday by the Stearns County Sheriff's Office.
A dive team and sonar team searched the area where the man, Ahmed Jarso, had previously jumped into the water. A diver found Jarso in about 40 feet of water and brought him to shore, where first responders provided life-saving measures. Jarso was then transported to St. Cloud Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
