The man died Sunday at Iowa Methodist Medical Center. He was identified as Allen Kinnick.

A witness told police that Kinnick had been drinking on Saturday afternoon in a homeless camp under the Southwest Seventh Street bridge in Des Moines. The witness reports that Kinnick got up, took a few steps and fell into the river. He was pulled from the water about 15 minutes later, around seven blocks downstream.
