The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office reports a man died after being thrown from the jet boat he was operating into the Snoqualmie River on Sunday afternoon.

The man was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed when he lost control of the jet boat and was thrown into the river near the 23500 block of High Bridge Road, according to the sheriff’s office.

Witnesses on the riverbank retrieved the man from the river and performed CPR, and aid units later arrived and transported the man to the hospital, but he died on the way. The sheriff’s office reports the man was not wearing a life vest.

The victim’s name and cause of death will be provided by the medical examiner’s office.
