ROYALTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man’s body was pulled from the St. Joseph River in Berrien County Sunday.
Authorities say the man was last seen on June 19 when the 45-year-old jumped into the river to save a child who was struggling in the water.
The Berrien County Sheriff’s Department says the man’s body was found about a half mile down river from where he went missing.
Authorities are not identifying the man until a positive identification can be made and family members have been notified.
An autopsy is scheduled at the Western Michigan University Homer Stryker School of Medicine.
