DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 8-year-old boy is OK after being swept about six blocks through a culvert in flooded Duluth.

St. Louis County Undersheriff Dave Phillips says the boy suffered some cuts, scrapes and bruises but is fine.

Phillips says the boy somehow was swept into the culvert near Proctor Wednesday afternoon and traveled about six blocks before he "popped up" down current.
