Valley County Sheriff: 17-year-old falls in Payette Lake, in 'grave condition'

The 17-year-old was taken to St. Luke’s McCall and then by air ambulance to St. Luke’s Downtown where the sheriff's office says he is in "grave condition".

Sunday afternoon emergency services responded to Payette Lake after reports of a 17-year-old fell into the water as he was paddle boarding.

Deputies say the 17-year-old's father called 911 and reported that his son was on a paddle board near their pontoon boat when he collapsed into the water. The father said his son was not breathing and they were trying to get them on the pontoon boat.

The sheriff's office says the 17-year-old was wearing a US Coast Guard approved life jacket at the time.

Valley County Marine Patrol responded in three minutes.

The 17-year-old was brought over to the sheriff’s office patrol boat where first aid was rendered and finally CPR was performed on the male. While doing this, the Marine Patrol took the male to the McCall Fire and EMS boat and was transferred to St. Luke’s McCall and then by air ambulance to St. Luke’s Downtown where the sheriff's office says he is in "grave condition".
