Possible Drowning Reported At Quail Creek State Park
HURRICANE, Utah — An 18-year-old male was hospitalized after falling out of a kayak at Quail Creek State Park, according to park officials.
Lt. Regan Wilson with Utah State Parks said officials received reports of a near-drowning near the main boat ramp around 8:45 p.m. Friday.
The teen was fishing off a kayak when his fishing line most likely got tangled, according to Wilson. Officials believe he went underwater as he was trying to untangle the line.
Wilson believed the teen was under for about 20 minutes.
Emergency personnel performed life-saving measures on the 18-year-old, but he was unresponsive.
He was transported to Dixie Regional Hospital late Friday night.
The teen had traveled from Nevada to visit the park with family and friends, Wilson said.
His identity had not been released and an update on his condition was not immediately available.
Officials said they don’t suspect foul play, but an investigation is ongoing.
