At 7:49 p.m., a 911 call reported an unconscious, unresponsive man who was pulled from the water at Green Lake, the Seattle Fire Department said. Emergency personnel responded to East Green Lake Drive East and NE 72nd Street near the indoor pool.
When firefighters arrived a “Good Samaritan” had pulled the patient from the water and initiated CPR. Witnesses told firefighters the teenager was under water for approximately 4 minutes.
The 10 firefighters on scene continued CPR. After 12 minutes of continuous chest compressions, firefighters were able to get the patient’s pulse. Medics transported the 19-year-old man to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition, the Fire Department said.
