The body of an Issaquah man has been recovered from Rattlesnake Lake in Cedar Falls.
The 38-year-old was in an inflatable boat on the lake on Tuesday, Aug. 6. Witnesses say the man either jumped or fell into the water and did not resurface, according to a King County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) press release.
His friends searched for him for about 20 minutes and then called 911.
The KCSO marine unit responded to the lake but ultimately had to suspend the rescue search when it became dark.
A remote operated vehicle found the man’s body on Aug. 7, and it was recovered by a dive unit.
Autopsy results are pending.
