A teenager from Federal Way has died at Lake Tapps.

Robert Harris, 17, was swimming in the popular East Pierce County reservoir and went under the water, said Amber Midkiff, an investigator for the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office.

She said an autopsy is planned Monday.

KOMO 4 reports the teen was at a family barbecue today when he went into the water to go after a football.
