"I can't believe it!" Fisher cried. "I took him down to the river so he could see where his ancestors came from and before I could stop him he jumped onto a log and tried to make his way across the river."
Sheriff department officials were called, but there was little anyone could do, as the log jam in the river made rescue attempts almost impossible. Mr. Fisher made one last frantic attempt to rescue the tiny bark covered figure, but failed when the pole he was using snapped in half before Stickman could grab it. "I saw his little round face," Fisher told OFF THE WALL NEWS. "Expressionless as always, but it was obvious, he didn't want to be shredded between the much larger logs. My pole snapped just as he grabbed for it and in the next instant, he was pulp! It was just awful!"

Officials plan to drag the river next Spring for the little stick figure and if he did somehow survive, hope the log jam didn't take him down river. OFF THE WALL NEWS will be there to report the latest.
