Rich Plecity, seen May 18 in Fargo, runs an excavating firm in Valley City. He used a rope to pull a teen girl from the Sheyenne River on May 17. Plecity said he was walking his dog when he heard screaming from this bridge between Osgood and the Carmell Place developments. Plecity said he believed the girl and her friends were taking part in a “cold water challenge” with her jump into the frigid river.
