Medics resuscitate man pulled from Lake Union

A man thought to be in his 50s was pulled from Lake Union Saturday night and taken to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said.

The man had been swimming off a boat when he disappeared from view, Moore said. Some time later he came to the water’s surface, face-down. Others on the lake pulled him to a boat and began CPR, Moore said. They then brought him to a small dock at 1050 Fairview Ave. E., where medics with the fire department were able to resuscitate him.

Medics were able to get “good vitals,” including a strong pulse, Moore said. It’s not known how long the man had been under water.
