According to authorities, the victim was tubing with friends near the Blue Point Bridge when he broke away from the group and attempted to retrieve a tube that floated away. The man became exhausted and went underwater for an undetermined period of time. His friends were able to pull him out and administer CPR, but he was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

His identity has not yet been released.

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.
