Boater Missing after Rowboat Capsizes near Burley Lagoon

 
PIERCE COUNTY, WA (December 28, 2018) – A man is still missing after a boating accident near Purdy Spit Bridge. The identity of the 24-year-old victim was not immediately disclosed to the public.
 
According to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office, the incident happened near Burley Lagoon, at about 6:30 PM. Three men took a rowboat to shore to shop for supplies. Afterward, on their way out, large waves began spilling over the side, filling and eventually submerging the small vessel.
 
The 24-year-old man held onto the capsized rowboat, while his two companions made it safely to shore. There was a massive response from law enforcement on Friday evening. However, the search for the missing boater was called off Sunday morning due to dangerous weather conditions.
 
An investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the accident and to identify other possible contributing factors. It was also noted that none of the boaters wore life jackets at the time of the incident. Additional information will be released once it becomes available.
 
Boating accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, and to anyone. That is why it is important to wear a life jacket, to check your equipment, and to watch out for weather updates. This way, you can avoid possible risks and prevent unfortunate results.
