JUD, N.D. — A North Dakota man is dead after saving a puppy from an uncovered sewage tank.

LaMoure County Sheriff Bob Fernandes tells KQDJ radio that 19-year-old Jesse Wagner attempted to retrieve the dog Saturday night.

Fernandes says Wagner entered the tank to retrieve the animal, which crawled up onto his shoulders and was grabbed by Wagner's mother. But Wagner lost his grip and fell about 10 feet.

It took rescue crews about 30 minutes to recover his body.
