Snohomish County undersheriff saved from drowning

A bystander saved Snohomish County Undersheriff Tom Davis from drowning after pulling him out of the Stillaguamish River Sunday morning, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The bystander had pulled  Davis to shore by the time Arlington Police and Fire departments got to  the scene at about 10:30 a.m. , near the Twin Rivers Park in the 400 block of East Burke Avenue in Arlington.

Davis  was taken to Cascade Valley Medical Center  and released later in the day.

“My family and I are extremely grateful for the quick actions taken by everyone involved yesterday…from the bystander who helped me from the river to the aid units who responded so quickly.  I cannot thank them enough,” Davis said in a released statement.

The bystander declined to be identified.
