Rescuers pull 17-year-old boy from Steel Lake in Federal Way

A 17-year-old boy was pulled from 12-feet of water in Steel Lake in Federal Way after he struggled and went under Friday evening.

The accident happened about 8:30 p.m. near the swimming area of Steel Lake Park at 2400 block of South 312th Street.

South King Fire and Rescue responded and quickly brought him to shore, where they began cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and managed to restart his heart.

Assistant Chief Gordie Olson estimated the boy had been under water 15 minutes. The boy was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

There was no additional information on his condition Saturday.
