(CBS4) – A 19-year-old man who died over the holiday weekend when he dove into St. Mary’s Lake and didn’t resurface has been identified. Victor Farmer was underwater for more than two hours before a dive team was able to pull out his body.
He was declared dead after being airlifted to a hospital in the Denver metro area.
Farmer, who is from Centennial, was visiting the St. Mary’s area in Clear Creek County with friends on Saturday afternoon when the incident occurred.
Officials from the Clear Creek County Sheriff’s office said the water in the lake is cold and some boulders are present in the water.
So far it’s not clear exactly what caused Farmer’s death.
