Two Yakima Residents Drowned in Rimrock Lake Saturday

Posted: Updated:

RIMROCK LAKE, Wash. - A 29-year-old woman and a 14-year-old boy, both from Yakima, drowned Saturday in Rimrock Lake. The Yakima County Sheriff's Office said the woman was trying to retrieve a floatation device that had drifted away when the boy offered to help. Both reportedly knew how to swim.

Witnesses told deputies the boy began to panic and as he did so he pushed the woman underwater. Eventually both became exhausted and were unable to make it back to shore. 

The female was retrieved but despite CPR efforts she died before first responders arrived. The boy was found about two hours later by a dive team.
