SOUTH BEND — Police are asking for the public's help identifying a man rescued from the St. Joseph River Monday evening.

The South Bend Fire Department rescued the man and he was taken to Memorial Hospital where he was listed in critical condition.

The man is Caucasian with hazel eyes, salt-and-pepper hair and a mustache. He is about 5'11" tall and weighs about 220 pounds. He was wearing black cargo pants, a blue jacket, brown Merrell shoes size 10.5 and had a medical bracelet which listed him as taking Coumadin, with an O positive blood type and suffering from a tape allergy.

The Forest Service says it will release a final decision Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014, on how much timber to log from the Sierra Nevada's largest wildfire in recorded history. Last year's Rim Fire burned 400 square miles including parts of Yosemite. A debate has since raged about sending burned and dead trees to lumber mills or leave them and let nature take its course.
