INDEX, Wash. - An 18-year-old man who was found unconscious about 200 feet downstream at Eagle Falls on the Skykomish River has died.

Search crews found the man on a river bank a short time after he was reported missing earlier Monday.

Rescuers began performing CPR on the man after he was found, and a helicopter crew was on hand, but the man didn't make it, said Shari Ireton with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.

It was not immediately clear how the man went into the river.
