Carnegie Lake Drowning Under Investigation

By Anne Levin

A 23-year-old man died Friday after jumping into Lake Carnegie off the dock near the boat launch. Talven Page, of Trenton, swam a few moments before disappearing under the water and failed to resurface, according to the Princeton Police Department.

The matter remains under investigation by the department’s Detective Bureau. Police were notified at 2:52 p.m. Friday, August 10, by a friend of Page, who said he saw him enter the water. The police arrived three minutes later, and two officers entered the water and searched the area.

“The officers observed bubbles come to the surface as the third officer probed the area with a pole from the dock,” reads a press release issued Monday. “One of the officers went underwater and located the victim, grabbed him by the arm and pulled him to the surface where all three officers and Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad members put the victim on the dock and immediately began CPR at 3:03 p.m.”

Page was subsequently taken to Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center, and was pronounced dead there at 3:54 p.m. despite efforts by medical staff.
