Boise Man Dies After Drowning in Quinn’s Pond
Idaho has more deaths by drowning each year than any other state. Quinn's Pond in Boise is a busy place in a busy area. It also unfortunately has its fair share of sad instances like this one.
According to the City of Boise news page, "At 3:00 pm on July 11th, Boise Fire, Boise Police, and Ada County Paramedics responded to a report of an adult male, possibly in his 60s, who was swimming at Quinn’s Pond before bystanders noticed him unresponsive. Bystanders immediately pulled him to shore and began life-saving measures until First Responders arrived and took over. The victim was rushed to a local hospital, but sadly he did not survive."
While the investigation is on-going, thus far no foul play is suspected. Possibly another health issue came in to play while the man was in the water. We have his family and friends in our thoughts and prayers.
Please be safe while spending so much more time on the water in these hotter months.
