Woman Drowns While Tubing with Family and Friends at Potholes State Park near Moses Lake

Posted: Updated:
 MOSES LAKE, WA - More tragedy at Potholes State Park near Moses Lake. A group of family and friends inner tubing in a creek that dumps into Potholes Reservoir ran into some trouble Sunday and one person drowned.

The Grant County Sheriff's Office said a 30-year-old woman went through some rapids, fell off her tube and did not come back up around 3 p.m. The other two people in the group escaped with just bumps and bruises.

A swift water rescue team responded and recovered the woman's body around 6:30 p.m. An autopsy will likely be done Monday. The woman's identity has not yet been released.

This is the second deadly incident at Potholes State Park this weekend. On Saturday, a young couple found their infant dead when they awoke.
