File # JV231810093


On June 30, 2023, around 4:28 p.m., deputies from the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to an accidental drowning at Rancho Jurupa Park in the 4800 block of Crestmore Road. Responding deputies learned that an adult male had entered the water and swam approximately thirty yards into the lake to retrieve a fishing rod. The male went underneath the water; however, witnesses stated he never resurfaced. Cal-Fire, Jurupa Valley Park Rangers, and Riverside Sheriff’s Helicopter Rescue 9 assisted with the search. The male was located by Rescue 9 and pulled ashore with the assistance of a Cal-Fire boat. Life-saving measures were performed; however, the male succumbed to his injuries. The identity of the male will be released by the Coroner’s Office upon notifying the next of kin.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Deputy Barba at the Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Station (951) 955-2600.
