SEATTLE - Emergency divers have recovered the body of a man who disappeared into the waters of Lake Washington after he jumped off a boat and never surfaced.

Crews responded to the 4500 block of Lake Washington Boulevard South, where boaters were gathered for Seafair activities at Lakewood Marina.

Witnesses told rescue teams just before 5 p.m. that the 26-year-old man was drinking on board a boat with friends Saturday evening when he fell, hit his head and went into the water.

Dive teams searched for hours before using a special radar and recovered the man's body around 9 p.m.
