THURSTON COUNTY: Man hits head after jumping into lake

A man was transported to Providence St. Peter Hospital on Saturday night after jumping off a boat into Black Lake and landing on his head on a sand bar, said Black Lake/McLane Fire Chief Steve North.

North would not release the man’s name or his injuries, citing federal law governing the privacy of medical patients. Emergency personnel were dispatched to the Kennydell Park area around 8:26 p.m. to respond to the incident. The man was reportedly going in and out of consciousness.
