A man has drowned at Lake Kaweah. 

Tulare County Sheriff’s Deputies say Ivan Dillard, 50, of Cutler was with his brother and two friends unloading their boat at the Lemon Hill Boat Ramp, just before 1 p.m. today.

Deputies say Dillard’s brother went to park the truck and when he came back, he saw Dillard struggling to swim in the lake.

He then jumped into the water to help his brother but he began struggling as well.

The brother was able to get Dillard out of the water and began performing CPR.

Dillard was transported to Kaweah Delta Hospital where he later died. 

Deputies say their two other friends could not swim either.
