The Fresno County Coroner's Office on Monday identified the man who drowned at Shaver Lake on Saturday as Luis Ortiz, 38.
Ortiz's residence was not known, but he was not a Fresno County resident, the Coroner's Office said.
The Fresno County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a call of a man stuck in a waterfall in an area near Stevenson's Creek and Shaver Dam. The man had been exploring with friends in Shaver Canyon near the dam when he became stuck under the falls and friends were unable to pull him out, the Sheriff's Office said.
Deputies had to rappel several hundred feet to where Ortiz was located. When they reached him, he was dead. Deputies used a California Highway Patrol helicopter to remove the body from the river.
Also, deputies on Monday continued a search for an Anaheim man presumed drowned at Hume Lake.
Divers began searching the lake Friday for the 27-year-old man, who was visiting with family and swimming near Sandy Point. Dense vegetation has made it hard for divers to see and move underwater, a sheriff's dive unit supervisor said Sunday.
