A 26-year-old man died Saturday after falling off a boat into Lake Washington, police said.
Harbor Patrol units and the Coast Guard seached for the man after witnesses reported that he’d fallen and hit his head before tumbling into the lake at about 4:40 p.m. near the 5000 block of Lake Washington Boulevard South. The man’s body was recovered at about 9 p.m., the Seattle Police Department said. His identity was not immediately released.
It was the second local water-related search on the busy Seafair Saturday.
Earlier, a man was pulled from South Lake Union in critical condition after he jumped into the lake and failed to resurface. The unidentified 49-year-old man was taken to Harborview Medical Center, according to a Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman.
