LSU football fans save Wisconsin man from drowning

The LSU football program entered the 2016 college football season with high hopes. Unfortunately, their season got off to a rocky start after suffering an upset loss to the Wisconsin Badgers at Lambeau Field on opening weekend.

However, two LSU football fans received a bigger reward than winning a game when they got to play hero by saving a Wisconsin man from drowning.

According to The Advocate, the two men saved a man who fell from a boat into the Milwaukee River on Labor Day.

From the report:

Jill Dunlap, 47, of Baton Rouge, said her husband and a friend leaped to the aid of a man who fell into the Milwaukee River and saved him while dining along the Milwaukee Riverwalk Monday afternoon.


The group was enjoying drinks at Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery when they heard a woman screaming Monday at about 4 p.m., Dunlap said.

A man in his 60s or 70s had fallen off a small yacht while trying to tie it to the dock, she said. While the man was struggling in the water, the boat “was still backing up on him,” Dunlap said.

The LSU fans may not have received the result they wanted from the game on Saturday, but it’s great to see that some good came from their trip up north.
