The body of the American actress Naya Rivera was found in Lake Piru, her death was officially confirmed by the authorities of California. She managed to save her son before she died herself.
The body of a 33-year-old actress was discovered on Lake Piru five days after she went missing. The performer rented a boat to ride with her 4-year-old son, Josie Dorsey. The boy was found alone sleeping at the bottom of the boat, and rescuers believe that the actress managed to pull him out of the water before she drowned herself. The child was able to explain that his mother put him in a boat, and then disappeared. There are powerful currents in Lake Piru, and she could spend her last efforts to save the child, and after it, most likely, she was carried away by a stream of water.
Investigators called her death a “tragic accident”, although the exact cause of death is still unknown.
The body was found floating in the northeastern part of the lake near the surface of the water. The area was thoroughly searched by divers using sonar technology, but difficult weather conditions interfered with the search.
