Shortly before 2:30 p.m., fire officials announced the victim’s body had been recovered.

The initial call came out shortly after 1 p.m., sending several fire personnel to the area.

“Lifeguards are in the water searching, and the sheriff’s dive team has been called out,” San Bernardino County Fire spokesman Eric Sherwin said.

Originally, the call said it was a child missing in the water, but sheriff’s officials say the victim is a 45-year-old man.

His identity is being withheld pending next-of-kin notification.
