LANCASTER — Authorities have yet to determine why a fisherman jumped into a lake at the Apollo Community Regional Park, which led to his death.
The man’s body was located more than two hours later in the water.
The man was reported missing about 3:05 p.m. Saturday at the park, Los Angeles County Fire Department Dispatch Supervisor Melanie Flores said.
Four divers, Urban Search and Rescue teams in boats and helicopters in the air searched for him, fire officials said.
The rescue operation was changed to body recovery at 4:39 p.m., Flores said. At about 5:15 p.m., firefighters reported the body was located in the water and brought to the shoreline.
The man’s name will be released pending notification of next of kin, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
