A man who drowned Saturday in Alder Lake has been identified as 33-year-old Isaiah Jones of Kent.
He was lounging on an inflatable chair outside of the buoys when he slipped and fell into the water about 5 p.m., according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
He tried swimming to shore but did not make it.
Officials said Jones was not wearing a life jacket and was east of the swimming area when he went into the water.
