Teen dies after being pulled from Enumclaw-area lake

Zachary Kuhn, the 16-year-old boy pulled from Deep lake near Enumclaw on Wednesday has died, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

Divers found the boy 50 feet below the surface of the lake at Nolte State Park  around 1:30 p.m., according to Tim Perciful, spokesman for Mountain View Fire and Rescue. Friends said around 12:30 p.m. the boy, who was with a church group from Yakima, looked like he needed help, but they thought he was joking. A friend called 911 when they realized he was drowning.

Medics initiated CPR and transported him to MultiCare Auburn Medical Center, where he died on Wednesday.

Pastor Harry Thomas, Jr., of the music festival, Creation Fest, told KIRO-TV, “It’s really sad. The (boy’s) mother just crumpled in my arms and cried and cried and cried.”
