A Russian man drowned in Lake Powell last week.
Officials say a group of 29 foreign nationals headed out on the lake, located along the border of Utah and Arizona, on Monday, August 27. The group had rented three pontoon boats, and some of them jumped in for a swim without putting on life jackets.
As the winds picked up, several swimmers struggled to stay afloat, and although some were able to swim to shore and others were pulled out of the water, one man died. The drowning victim was identified on Wednesday at 20-year-old St. Petersburg resident

Authorities also added that two people were cut by the boat’s propellers as they helped bring his body back into the boat, while three others nearly drowned in the dangerous incident.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
