Teen brothers drown in Spanaway Lake

SPANAWAY, Wash. (AP) — Two teenage brothers drowned in Spanaway Lake. That’s according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department. The names of the boys, ages 14 and 15, weren’t released. At 3:40 p.m. Sunday one of the brothers slipped off a flotation device and went underwater. When he didn’t resurface, the other brother dove in to look for him, but he didn’t come back up. A sheriff’s dive team arrived and pulled one of the teens out of the water. They found the second brother near the bottom of the lake. Both boys were taken to a Tacoma hospital where they were pronounced dead.
