Boy pulled from Snohomish County lake dies

An 8-year-old Auburn boy pulled from Lake Roesiger died late Sunday afternoon, according to the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The Snohomish County 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. Sunday. The boy was located by Snohomish County Dive Team and Marine Unit divers about an hour later.

The boy has not been identified.

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.
