The men were walking on the Burlington Northern railroad bridge between downtown Moorhead and Fargo when Littleghost fell from the bridge and dropped 20 feet into the river below.

Littleghost was rescued from the water by Josie Green, an 18-year-old Minnesota State University Moorhead freshman who was jogging along the bike path in Riverfront Park around the same time.
