SNOHOMISH — A man was pulled from the Pilchuck River in Snohomish on Wednesday after apparently losing consciousness in the water.
Witnesses at the scene told firefighters than the man had been drinking alcohol and playing in the river before he started struggling.
Emergency responders were called about 2:40 p.m. to the river, just off of Cypress Avenue.
They found the man on the beach having trouble breathing.
The man, who was believed to be middle-aged, was taken to a local hospital via ambulance. He was expected to recover.
