Posted on Friday, July 21st, 2017 at 6:42 PM

Today during the 3pm time frame Lake Havasu City Police, Fire, and MCSO responded to the area of Crazyhorse Campgrounds after off duty California police officers were flagged down and alerted to a female found floating in the water. The female was brought in by boat with CPR already in progress, and CPR was continued by Lake Havasu City Fire for another 10-15 minutes before FD pronounced the subject deceased.

MCSO attempted to investigate the incident, when they learned after overcoming a language barrier that a Hispanic male was missing. Emergency personnel continued searching the area – Lake Havasu Police located the second subject under water and he too was pronounced deceased.

No further information is available at this time. The cause of the deaths is still under investigation.
