Body found in pond in Lynnwood; in separate case, passersby rescue teen girl from Angle Lake in SeaTac
LYNNWOOD, Wash. — A body was found face-down in a pond in Lynnwood Wednesday, police said.
“Body removed from the pond; gender/age to be determined by Medical Examiner,” Lynnwood Police said in a tweet.
At about 2:30 p.m., officers were called about a report of a possible person in the pond of Mini Park at 5200 200th SW, Lynnwood Police said. The Edmonds Police Department dive team recovered the body.
In the other case, the Kent Regional Fire Authority said a teenage girl was treated and transported to a local hospital after two bystanders found her underwater at Angle Lake Park Wednesday afternoon.
Firefighters from Kent, who are contracted to provide EMS/Fire services to the city of SeaTac, were dispatched at 3:15 p.m. to a report that civilians were doing CPR on the young teenager after she was found face-down in the water near the dock. According to witnesses, the patient may have been underwater for several minutes.
“The firefighters and paramedics took over the CPR from the civilians and were able to regain a pulse in the patient,” the Kent Fire news release said.
“Much of the credit for the firefighters being able to regain a pulse in the patient was due to the CPR done prior to our arrival by the civilian bystanders,” the news release.
This is the second incident at Angle Lake in the past month. Earlier this month, a young man jumped off a raft in the middle of the lake and drowned. His body was recovered several hours after he was last seen.
There were no lifeguards on duty at the time of the incident. Lifeguards are not stationed at the park until July 1.
