Personal Injury Accident

On November 20, 2021 at approximately 10:15 a.m., the Plymouth County 911 Dispatch received a call of a hunter and his dog that fell into the Big Sioux River near Boyd's Bend access north of Akron, Iowa.  Plymouth County Deputies responded on scene at approximately 10:18 a.m. to find a hunter and his dog stuck in the water unable to get out of the water due to the tall embankment. Sheriff Deputies and an Akron Firefighter were able to pull the hunter and his dog from the river.  The hunter was transported to Hawarden Hospital by Akron Ambulance for possible hypothermia.  The Plymouth County Sherriff's Office was assisted by Akron Fire Department and Akron Ambulance.  The hunter is expected to make a full recovery with no injuries.
