SEATTLE (AP) — A Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman says both young men who were pulled unconscious from Seattle’s Green Lake have died.

The Seattle Times reports that spokeswoman Leila Gray says one man died Friday. The other died shortly after he was brought to the emergency room.

Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore says the two were unconscious and unresponsive when divers found them Thursday night.

They were not immediately identified.

One had reportedly been underwater for 30 minutes and the other for 45 minutes.

A total of four men had decided to go for a swim about 9:30 p.m. Thursday but only two made it back to shore. Witnesses saw the other two men struggling.

Civil rights attorneys said they hope to exonerate the former chairman of a bribery conviction by obtaining unreleased emails from a federal judge reprimanded for sending racist correspondence. Former Montana U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull sentenced Birdinground (“bird-in-ground”) to three years in prison in 2003. The 79-year-old Crow leader had pleaded guilty to taking kickbacks from a car dealership. When Birdinground sought to retract his plea and go to trial, Cebull rejected the request, a decision upheld on appeal. Cebull resigned last year after an investigation into a racist email he sent involving President Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Billings Gazette, Larry Mayer)
