SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) – A man who rode his bicycle into the Missouri River at South Sioux City, Neb., has been rescued from the fast-moving water. Sioux City television station KCAU reports that the man was riding his bicycle toward the river around 2:30 p.m. Monday on the Nebraska side of the river. Witnesses say he apparently lost control and fell into the river.

Security at the Argosy Casino on the Iowa side of the river launched a rescue boat and picked the man up in just minutes. The man was taken away in an ambulance, but he appeared to be in good condition.
