PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Despite efforts from a paramedic, a man died at Hagg Lake Tuesday evening, officials told KOIN 6 News.
Matthew Johnston with Forest Grove Fire said the person who died was either a triathlete or was training with triathletes. Johnston said it was not clear if the person drowned or had a medical emergency that became a drowning.
The paramedic began CPR as soon as the person was brought to the shore, but Johnston was not clear on how long that may have taken. The person — later identified as Christopher Farmer — died at the scene.
No further information is available at this time.
