Coulee Medical Center ER and Walk-In Care

Three rescued from Lake Roosevelt


Three people were pulled from the water in Lake Roosevelt between Crescent Bay and Eden Harbor last Wednesday evening after their boat had capsized.

When word of the incident reached boaters at Spring Canyon, Javier P. Baca from New Mexico, took off in his boat to try to locate the capsized boat.

He reached the boat and pulled two women from the water.

A third person, the operator of the boat, was pulled from the water by Levi Seylor and Chester “Chip” Baer, who towed the small, partially submerged, flat-bottom boat to Crescent Bay.

The two women found in the water were taken to Coulee Medical Center for possible treatment.

Grand Coulee police officers were involved until National Park Service employees arrived at the scene.
