After his 3-year-old son fell into a 20-feet-deep channel on June 15, 2019, near Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, Christopher F.N. Schultz jumped in after him, fully clothed. Schultz, a 31-year-old construction worker of Frazee, Minnesota, grasped Ashton M.C. Schultz under his arms and held him above the water, while swimming toward a bank about 80 feet away. Struggling at a point about halfway to the bank, Schultz’s friend jumped into the water and took Ashton from Schultz, swimming him the rest of the way to the bank. Schultz submerged, and efforts to locate him failed. Police and a dive team responded and pulled Schultz from the water, but he had drowned.
