MILL CREEK -- A 12-year-old Everett boy has died after being rescued from Martha Lake earlier this week.

He was rushed to the hospital Monday after rescue crews found him under water at the suburban lake, west of Mill Creek*.
His cause of death was freshwater drowning, officials said. His death was ruled an accident.
Police believe the boy was visiting the lake with friends and their parents.
