An Oak Harbor High School senior is believed to have jumped to his death from Deception Pass Bridge early Thursday evening.
At approximately 6:30 p.m. Thursday, witnesses saw 17-year-old Adrian Almario of Oak Harbor jump from the bridge. Another witness saw him briefly floating in the water, 180 feet below. As of the News-Times’ press time Friday afternoon, Almario’s body had not been recovered.
Authorities believe Almario walked to the bridge from Oak Harbor and was alone when he jumped.
Almario had attended Oak Harbor schools since 2000 when he was at North Whidbey Middle School. At Oak Harbor High School he was a member of the culinary arts team that recently won a state competition.
“This just came out of the blue. I would have never anticipated it,” said Louise Reuble, culinary arts instructor at the high school.
She said Almario was pleasant, introspective and hard working. He participated in the Knowledge Bowl portion of the state culinary competition the students won last month.
Reuble said Almario was planning to enroll in the culinary arts program at Skagit Valley College after graduating from high school. He had signed up for a field trip to the college campus scheduled for Tuesday.
“It’s hard for everybody,” Reuble said, adding students made tearful visits to the culinary classroom after learning the news.
Attempts to contact Almario’s family weren’t successful.
Rescue crews searched the waters and beaches of Deception Pass after the teenager jumped. A backpack left at the site and eyewitness accounts convinced officials that Almario was the person who jumped.
Because there was an incoming tide when Almario jumped, rescue crews searched the area from the bridge to Dugualla Bay, said Marv Koorn, chief of North Whidbey Fire and Rescue.
