Raptor Resource Project President dies during tornado clean-up

Posted:
MINNEAPOLIS (KWWL) -

The president of the organization responsible for the Decorah "Eagle Cam" died on Sunday while helping neighbors clean-up tornado damage in Minneapolis.

Robert MacIntyre, 53, was president of the Raptor Resource Project.

MacIntyre collapsed shortly after helping clear a tree that was blocking a street near his house.  Friends say he died of cardiac arrest.

Some are saying it took longer for paramedics to reach MacIntyre because they had to travel to him by foot due to the storm damage.

One other person died in Minneapolis from the storm itself.
