HUNTSVILLE, Utah — A man drowned Sunday afternoon while swimming in Pineview Reservoir.
Around 1:30 p.m., the man was swimming out after his son, who was on a floating device, in the Middle Inlet area of the reservoir. He went under the water before he could reach the boy and never resurfaced, the Weber County Sheriff's Office said.
A bystander was then able to reach the child, but they couldn't find the dad.
Search and rescue crews were called in, and they recovered the man's body just before 4 p.m.
Officials have not released the drowning victim's name, but family members confirmed to FOX 13 that he was 37-year-old Adrian Luna Sr.
A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family with costs.
The family issued a statement, which read:
"He fiercely loved his 2 sons, they meant the world to him and he meant the world to them. He was an outgoing person. Always a person that would put a smile on your face. He will be deeply missed and our memories with him will always be in our hearts."
