ENUMCLAW, Wash. (AP) - A 37-year-old man died Thursday afternoon after he fell from his boat into Deep Lake in Enumclaw, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

The Seattle Times reports sheriff deputies responded to the lake near the 36900 block of Veazie Cumberland Road Southeast, after receiving reports that someone had fallen off a boat, the sheriff’s office tweeted around 3 p.m.

Deputies pulled the man out of the water and medics attempted live-saving measures, but he died at the scene, according to the tweet.

The man had been fishing with his son before he was “thrown out of the boat,” the sheriff’s office said. His son was not injured.
