BEAVER, UTAH — Multiple agencies including the Beaver County Sherriff’s Office responded to a call made on July 28 at 6:46 pm of a man entering the water near the spillway at the Minersville Reservoir.
According to Beaver County Sherriff’s Office, a 29-year-old Nevada man had entered the water to cool off. However, he was unable to keep afloat due to the high water current.
The man went under and never resurfaced.
The body of the male was discovered 20 minutes later and nearly 300 yards from where he first went into the water.
Police urge the public to use caution and floatation devices when entering water.
