Divers find body of missing 60-year-old boater in California

Divers have discovered the body of a boater who fell into Irvine Lake in California on Saturday.

The 60-year-old boater was discovered at around 11:40 a.m. He had apparently been fishing with a friend of his when he fell into the water, and his friend also fell when he tried to rescue him, according to an OC Register report.

The friend made it back to the boat but couldn’t get the man back. Neither man was wearing a life jacket.

Rescuers were sent early that evening to the lake, and the sheriff’s department took over when they gave up hope of finding him alive. The body was eventually found about 35 feet from where he fell in about 25 feet of water, according to the report.
