SNOHOMISH, Wash. - A man was stranded on an island in the Snohomish River on Wednesday afternoon.
The man fell into the river from his boat after it apparently caught a snag in the river and flipped over, according to Shari L. Ireton, a spokeswoman for the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.
The man was wearing a life jacket.
The Sheriff's Office Dive Team responded to the 13700 block of Short School Road and successfully rescued him. He had no apparent injuries.
