PACKWOOD – The Lewis County sheriff’s office says a camper drowned Saturday in a river just outside Mount Rainier National Park east of Packwood.
The sheriff’s office says he went wading in the Ohanapecosh River and was swept away by the current. He went over a waterfall and was pinned under logs. Kayakers pulled him out, but he was declared dead at Morton General Hospital.
He was identified Monday by the Lewis County coroner’s office as 41-year-old Michael Barrett of Bothell.
