Teen in critical condition after Green Lake near drowning

SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Fire Department says a 19-year-old man has been revived after witnesses say he spent about four minutes under water at Seattle's Green Lake.

In a statement, the fire department says a good Samaritan at the lake pulled the young man from the water Thursday evening and began CPR.

Firefighters arrived two minutes after being dispatched and continued the CPR. They say that after about 12 minutes of continuous chest compressions, they were able to get a pulse.

Medics took the teen to Harborview Medical Center, reportedly in critical condition.
