Deputy Sheriff Bryan Gross drowned in the North Platte River while attempting to save a teenage girl who had jumped into the river after fighting with her boyfriend.

Deputy Gross had responded to the scene and entered the water, which was swollen due to heavy snowmelt. The girl was pulled from the water by bystanders but Deputy Gross was swept away. His body was found four days later, approximately 1/2 mile from where he entered the river.

I am sorry to hear about your guys lost. But he is one of the reason why I want to be in law enforcement. When I was reading the cause It hurt my heart when I saw the cause. And knowing he had a family to comeback to but didn't return jerked a tear out of me. But knowing your loved one/friend risked his life for another life kind of brings you joy knowing he died as a hero. And I will think of him as a hero.
