MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A 16-year-old Sauk Rapids boy is recovering in a Minneapolis hospital after he was shocked by an electrical wire and fell while climbing on a closed bridge.

Police say Daniel Fleigle climbed to the top of the old bridge over the Mississippi River in Sartell on June 15. He grabbed a live wire and then fell to the deck 30 feet below.

The teen was taken to St. Cloud Hospital, and then flown to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis.

Hennepin County Medical Center doctors say Daniel’s friends helped save his life by performing CPR at the scene before paramedics arrived.

A Hennepin County Medical Center spokeswoman says Daniel has been upgraded from critical to satisfactory condition.
