Drowning at Beals Point on Folsom Lake

A 30-year-old man drowned Friday afternoon at Beals Point on Folsom Lake.

The name of the victim has yet to be released. The Placer County Sheriff's Office and state park rangers said the drowning occurred at around 3 p.m., when the man was swimming with a co-worker and her child about 100 yards from shore.

The co-worker told News10 that the water was about 10 feet deep where the drowning occurred. The man said he was exhausted before he went under, the co-worker said.

The man was under water for about an hour before he was found. Firefighters, a state park lifeguard and a helicopter assisted in the search.
