A 20-year-old man has died after he went swimming with co-workers in the Snoqualmie River at Carnation, Wash., and went under water, King County sheriff's spokeswoman said.

A couple of kayakers happened to be in the vicinity and tried to pull the victim out Wednesday afternoon but failed, Sgt. Katie Larson said. A rescue crew recovered the body and began applying CPR. The unnamed man was declared dead at a hospital.

The King County Sheriff's Office Marine Unit is investigating the drowning.
