According to the Wenatchee Valley Firefighters Union, life-saving measures were performed on the man before he was taken to the hospital. 

The state patrol confirmed the man's death Monday morning. 

Wenatchee Valley Firefighters say their Water Rescue Team was immediately activated after noon Saturday and located the man in the river 

The union says the patient was pulled to shore by a rescue swimmer and CPR was started. 

The patient was transported by boat by additional Rescue Team members to Confluence boat launch. 

The patient regained pulses and was transported to Central Washington Hospital. 

The State Patrol listed the incident as a possible suicide attempt. 

As far as involuntary commitment; 

Under the Involuntary Treatment Act in Washington, a person is typically referred by family members, first responders, or care providers for an investigation/evaluation. 

The referrals arise from concerns about a person's safety, history, and presentation of mental disorder or substance use disorder.
