A man drowned on Lake Havasu on Saturday morning after his canoe capsized. His body was recovered by a dive team on Monday morning.
On Saturday at around 10:13 am, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department boating deputies responded to a report of a boat accident with one missing person near Cove 1, south of Havasu Landing Marina on Lake Havasu. The vessel, an aluminum canoe, was determined to have capsized approximately 100 feet from shore. The victim, a 52 year-old male from West Covina, California, attempted to swim to shore but struggled, went underwater, and did not resurface.
San Bernardino County Dive Team members arrived on scene to assist with the search for the victim. The victim was located, deceased, by divers on Monday at approximately 8:46 am and released to the San Bernardino County Coroner’s division.

Sending Prayers to Family and Friends 🙏🙏🙏
Why would you go out on a Canoe not knowing how to swim and not wear a life vest. I don’t feel bad
Prayers to the family 🙏
Pretty stupid not wearing a life vest.
We’ve all made bad decisions.
Some get away with them, this guy didn’t.
