Man falls from inflatable chair, drowns in Alder Lake
EATONVILLE, Wash. (AP) — The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department says a Kent man drowned in Alder Lake near Eatonville, Washington.
The News Tribune reports that 33-year-old Isaiah Jones was on an inflatable chair east of the swimming area, outside the buoys, when he slipped off the chair and fell into the water about 5 p.m. Saturday.
Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer says the man, who was not wearing a life jacket, attempted to swim to shore, but did not make it.
Sheriff’s divers responded but weren’t immediately able to locate him.
Divers found his body Sunday in about 30 feet of water that’s filled with stumps and debris.
