Press Release from Fresno County Sheriff's
Fresno County Sheriff’s Office Dive Unit is currently conducting an underwater recovery operation for a drowning victim at Hume Lake.
Yesterday at about 4:00 PM, deputies were dispatched to Hume Lake to assist the US Forrest Service on a reported drowning.

The Forrest Service officer on scene reported he had been dispatched to Hume Lake at about 3:38 PM for a reported drowning. When he arrived, bystanders and staff from the nearby Hume Lake Christian Camp were in the water actively searching for the lost swimmer.

Dwindling light and cold water conditions precluded an extended search and the Sheriff’s Dive Unit was requested.

Deputies arrived and spoke with the victim’s family and witnesses at the scene. The victim, a 27 year old male was visiting Hume Lake with his family. A family member reported seeing the victim struggling in the water and calling for help near Sandy Point before he disappeared below the surface.

According to his family, the victim was in good physical condition, knew how to swim and had not been drinking or taking any medicine.
