The body of a 38-year-old man was recovered Monday at Lake Mohave, a Lake Mead National Recreation Area statement said.
At 9:52 a.m., the recreation area’s communication center received a call from a bystander reporting that someone was swimming and yelled for help before going underwater near Cabinsite Cove, the statement said.
Lake Mohave is about 100 miles south of Las Vegas.
The National Park Service and Bullhead City, Arizona, Fire Department responded to the scene and began a search, the news release said. At 10:25 a.m., a bystander diving nearby found the man and pulled him out of the water.
The Mohave County, Arizona, medical examiner will confirm the man’s identity and determine the cause of death.
The incident is under investigation.
