8-year-old boy pulled from lake in Snohomish County

An 8-year-old boy was pulled from Lake Roesiger this afternoon after the Snohomish County Dive Team and Marine Unit responded to a reported drowning.
His condition wasn’t known after he was transported to a hospital, the sheriff’s office said.
The sheriff’s office said it responded to a residence in the 2300 block of South Lake Roesiger Road after 911 callers reported the boy had failed to surface after swimming to a floating platform at about 2:20 p.m. A sheriff’s office helicopter also responded.
The boy was located by divers at about 3:20 p.m., and he was transported to the hospital by a fire department aid crew, the sheriff’s office said.
The sheriff’ s office noted that as the weather improves and outdoor activity around lakes and rivers increases, it is important to remember that personal flotation devices should be worn when playing on or near the water, particularly by children.
