Yesterday, the Pierce County Metro Dive Team assisted the Mason County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) in recovering a vehicle from Lake Cushman.
On Monday evening, a vehicle went over an embankment at Lake Cushman and became submerged. Two adults made it out of the vehicle safely, but a young child was not able to immediately escape. The child was eventually pulled from the vehicle, but did not survive. The driver was arrested and booked into the Mason County Jail.
MCSO requested assistance in conducting an underwater evidence search and removing the vehicle from the lake. Resources were provided as part of a mutual aid agreement, which allows agencies in our region to quickly obtain assistance from each other in the form of personnel, equipment, materials, and other services.
