The Bellevue police and fire departments responded to the scene at 7:41 p.m. after receiving a report that there was an unconscious female outside of a house on the 600 block of 153rd Avenue Northeast, according to a news release.
When officers and firefighters arrived, they found the non-responsive female in the backyard. Bellevue fire personnel attempted lifesaving measures for several minutes before she was declared dead.
Bellevue police detectives and the King County Medical Examiner arrived to conduct an investigation into the circumstances of the death.
