Rosemount teen dies in Duluth river

Email

A day of hiking and rock climbing ended tragically Wednesday when members of a church group waded into the Temperance River to cool off and wash up.

Andrea Evans, 17, of Rosemount, and youth counselor Julie Steiskal, 29, were in chest-deep water about 8:45 p.m. when the current swept them into the river's gorge and over its falls. Their bodies were recovered in the pool just upstream of Minnesota Highway 61 about 9:15 p.m.
