Print Article

COEUR d’ALENE — A 35-year-old Spokane man died Monday afternoon after he drowned in Lake Coeur d’Alene near Higgens Point.

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office reported that Peter Readicker had been brought to the Higgens Point docks by passing boaters around 4 p.m., with citizens attempting life-saving measures. Deputies and medical personnel responding to the incident continued CPR and attempted additional efforts to revive Readicker, but were unsuccessful.

Readicker was pronounced dead at the scene, the sheriff’s office reported.

An initial investigation indicates Readicker and another man were working on a float house on a remote portion of the lake when Readicker had difficulty in the water and briefly went under the surface, the sheriff’s office reported. The other man was able to get to Readicker and flagged down a passing boat for help. The boat took Readicker to Higgens Point to meet medical personnel.

The investigation by the KCSO marine division is ongoing, but foul play is not suspected. Members of the Coeur d’Alene Fire Department also reported to the incident.
