I am from Duluth, MN; born and raised. Just thought I would let you know I was down at the canal when the Halverson brothers drowned in april of 1967. I saw them that day, all 3 brothers running on the pier jumping the waves. I turned my head for a moment and they were gone. I remember telling my mother that they were gone. She didn't seem too think much of it. I remember thinking where could they have gone so fast. I was 8 yrs old at the time. We were parked down by the canal at the time watching the storm. Just thought I would let you know.
