Body of teen cliff diver recovered

MONROE, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say the body of a 17-year-old boy who disappeared while cliff diving northeast of Seattle near Cedar Ponds waterfall Sunday has been recovered. Snohomish County Sheriff’s rescue and dive teams initially responded Sunday for a report of a cliff diver who did not resurface, according to spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe. KOMO-TV reports search-and-rescue deputies and volunteers have searched every day since then, but were unable to recover the body due to dangerous conditions. A swiftwater rescue team managed to pull the boy’s body from the water Friday afternoon. His name was not immediately released.
