PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A 19-year-old Pierre man is at a hospital after a group of construction workers found him unconscious at the Oahe Dam emergency spillway.

KCCR-AM reports Zachary Young was found on the ground on the dry, downstream side of the spillway.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been doing construction work at the spillway where the gates are 40 to 50 feet off the ground.

Stanley County Chief Deputy Sheriff Greg Swanson says it is unclear what happened to Young at the site. Swanson says there are no signs of a struggle or foul play. He says the investigation is ongoing.
