Teen dies after being pulled from Federal Way lake

A 15-year-old boy who was pulled from Steel Lake in Federal Way on Sunday afternoon has died, according to FederalWayMirror.com.

Tope Akinlosotu died after he was rushed to to St. Francis Hospital, the Mirror is reporting.

Four lifeguards were on duty at the swimming area in Steel Lake Park, at 2410 S. 312th St., when they were notified at 2:15 p.m. that teen had not resurfaced, Olson said. He’d been underwater about two minutes before someone called 911, according to  Assistant Chief Gordie Olson of South King Fire & Rescue.

Dive-team members located Akinlosotu beneath a dock at 2:44 p.m., roughly half an hour after he’d disappeared, Olson said. Paramedics worked for another half-hour restoring this heart rate before taking him to the hospital, Olson said.

The Mirror reports Akinlosotu was a student at Federal Way High School.
