Whitman County coroner investigates why man died at Colfax city pool

COLFAX, WA - The Whitman County coroner is investigating the death of a 33-year-old man that occurred at the Colfax Municipal Pool Wednesday afternoon.

According to Colfax Police Chief Rick McNannay, David Futchko was climbing out of the pool when he suddenly fell back in and sank to the bottom. Chief McNannay said lifeguards pulled Futchko out of the pool within a matter of seconds and performed CPR, but he was unresponsive. He was later pronounced dead at the Whitman Hospital.

Chief McNannay said there's no indication that Futchko drowned, and it was likely a coronary issue, however they're still waiting for results of the coroner's investigation.
