Pratt Lake
The 31 year old hiker who died in a fall in North Bend on Sunday, June 3, 2018 has been identified as John Steven Needham of Shoreline.

Needham was hiking with a friend in the Pratt Lake area just north of I-90 and west of Snoqualmie Pass at 3:30pm when he fell down a 200 foot cliff.

The friend's dog prevented him from falling. The friend could see Needham's backpack at the bottom of the cliff but not him.

The friend hiked out for a hour before he could get cell service to call for help. King county search and rescue and King county sheriff's officers searched and found Needham's body at midnight.

He had died from multiple blunt force injuries. His death was ruled an accident by the King County Medical Examiner.
