No ID in Friday death of man swimming in Yuba River
June 18, 2017
The Nevada County Sheriff's Department has not released the identity of a 33-year-old man who died Friday afternoon while swimming in the Yuba River.
"The coroner division is waiting on the results," Corporal Jason Spillner said on Sunday. "We don't have anything right now that we can give details on… There's nothing suspicious about it."
The 33-year-old man died during a swimming excursion with a friend near Bridgeport.
The two people were in the water around 3:30 p.m. at Rice's Crossing. At some point the friend, his attention elsewhere, looked to the victim and saw him face down in the water, Royal said.
The friend pulled the victim to shore and saw he wasn't breathing. He then drove to the nearest home and called 911, the sheriff added.
"This seems to be another tragedy at this point in the river," Royal said.
Authorities responded and tried to revive the victim, who was pronounced dead around 4 p.m., the sheriff said.
