Update on girl injured at beach yesterday

It appears that the 14-year-old girl who was rescued from Lake Washington yesterday was not even diving when she passed out and hit the water. According to Seattle Fire Department spokesperson Helen Fitzpatrick, the girl was on the diving platform and did hit the water, but the girl does not remember jumping from the platform and it is not even clear that she was on the diving board before the incident occurred.

Although unconscious when she was pulled from the water, the girl regained consciousness just as CPR was being started by a Good Samaritan. She was rushed to Harborview late yesterday afternoon for evaluation and is now doing fine, according to Fitzpatrick.
