The sheriff of Ventura County, Calif. says "Glee" actress Naya Rivera's body may never be recovered from the deep, murky waters of Lake Piru reservoir.

Ventura County Sheriff's Department Capt. Eric Buschow said in a press conference Thursday that the search for the star is hampered by very low visibility and dangerous debris in Lake Piru.

"There's a lot of trees and plants and such that are under the water that can cause entanglements," he said. "It makes it unsafe for the divers and it makes a more complicated search." He added, "It's a very slow going search."

The sheriff's office released video from a CCTV camera at the dock that shows Naya, 33, and her 4-year-old son, Josey Dorsey, boarding a rental pontoon boat around lunchtime on Wednesday.

Lake staff found Josey sleeping on the boat later that afternoon when Naya missed the deadline to return the boat. He told police they went swimming together but she never returned to the boat.

Ventura County Sheriff's Department deployed air and dive teams to search for the missing actress. Her wallet and identification were found on the boat. Her purse was found in her black Mercedes Benz G Wagon parked at the dock.

The search for missing Glee actress Naya Rivera has shifted from a rescue to a recovery effort, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office confirmed in a press conference Thursday.

The 33-year-old star was reported missing after she rented a pontoon boat and went out on the Lake Piru reservoir with her four-year-old son Josey Dorsey around lunchtime Wednesday.

When the boat was overdue to return, lake staff went searching for it. They found Josey asleep on board the boat. Naya was nowhere in sight.

Authorities suspended the search for the actress around midnight - an action that angered her fans.

"Multiple teams of professional search & rescue personnel are actively searching Lake Piru for clues to the location of Naya Rivera," the Ventura County Sheriff's Office tweeted on Thursday. "With over 80 people involved in the search right now, we are using helicopters, boats, ATV vehicles, and ground personnel to try and locate her."

Captain Eric Buschow told reporters Josey was in good health and "The family is going through a very traumatic time right now."

He said one adult life vest was found on the boat - an indication that Naya wasn't wearing one when she went into the water.

This may well be a case of drowning. This is a big reservoir, it's deep, these kinds of things happen."

A grieving mom has filed a $1 million lawsuit after she lost her only son during a swimming pool incident at Carl Crawford's Texas mansion.

According to court papers obtained by TMZ, Liban Hersi claims the former Los Angeles Dodgers star didn't do enough to protect her 5-year-old son during a pool party at his home on May 16.

Hersi said her son was visiting Crawford with a family friend when he fell into the massive custom pool and drowned.

Another partygoer died when she jumped into the pool to try and help the drowning boy.

Hersi said the pool was not equipped with an alarm system and she claimed the pool's design was "unreasonably dangerous."

Hersi was not at the pool party when her son died. She was in another state working during the coronavirus pandemic.

The U.S. Coast Guard has called off the search for former WWE wrestling star Shad Gaspard who apparently drowned when a riptide pulled him under while swimming with his 10-year-old son off the coast of Venice Beach.

Gaspard, 39, was swimming with his son when a strong current pulled them both under water. His son was rescued by a lifeguard, but the 6-foot-7 in. wrestling star was swept under by a riptide and never seen again.

Gaspard's distraught wife, Siliana Gaspard, watched the rescue effort from the shore. Mother and son remained on the beach for hours afterwards, refusing to leave as the search continued.

"We had one of our lifeguards go out to make a double rescue of a father and a son," Kenichi Haskett, of Los Angeles County Fire Dept Lifeguard Division, told DailyMail.com exclusively.

"The father unfortunately got pushed down by a wave as they were getting pulled out of the current. The lifeguard rescued and grabbed the boy, the son, and tried to grab the father as well."

Haskett advised people to swim in knee-deep water in front of the open lifeguard tower so they can be seen if they are in distress.

"The mother and son have remained on the beach at the same location since yesterday," a local told DailyMail.com. "Neighbors have provided them with water and blankets and chairs."

"And one neighbor who lives right on the beach just steps away from the incident has opened his doors for them in case they need a bathroom or a place to rest," Venice local Patricia Powell told the Mail.

Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves - regret for the past and fear of the future. Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable. Life is too short, time is too precious, and the stakes are too high to dwell on what might have been. Live now. Enjoy today. For tomorrow is not promised. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #Wwe #WorldWrestlingEntertainment #ROH #RingOfHonor #NJPW #NewJapanProWrestling #wcw #nwo #AEW #AllEliteWrestling #MLW #TagteamWrestling #Tagteam #wwe #wweraw #TagteamChampions #smackdown #smackdownlive #wweedge #DrewMcIntyre #johncena #Nwo #JohnMorrison #NewDay #StreetProfits #wwesmackdown #smackdownlive #ThrowbackThursday ??

A 5-year-old boy and a woman drowned in the backyard swimming pool of former Los Angeles Dodgers star Carl Crawford.

Crawford was hosting a small gathering of 6 people at his Houston home when the accident occurred. The boy was swimming alone in the pool when he began to show signs of distress underwater.

A woman who jumped into the pool to rescue the boy struggled to resurface.

Crawford, 38, dived into the pool and managed to pull them out. Both victims were unresponsive by the time medics arrived at the scene.

They were pronounced dead at Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital. The woman and the boy, identified as Bethany Lartigue and Kasen Hersi, were unrelated to each other.

The boy's mother was at work at the time of the incident.

Friends paid tribute to Lartigue, who played for a professional women's football league.

"Our hearts are heavy. We know you have found eternal peace. Your soul touched us all! You were our solider, teammate, friend & SISTER!

We will retire the #4 in your honor! You are #4EVEROURHERO," they wrote on Instagram.
 

A Houston Police Department source said no charges will be filed against Crawford. The deaths will be classified as accidental drownings.

In March, a Texas judge denied a motion filed by Crawford, CEO of 1501 Certified Entertainment, to lift a temporary restraining order preventing him from blocking Megan Thee Stallion's new music release.

A Louisiana man died while proposing to his girlfriend underwater in Tanzania. Steven Weber tried to hold his breath underwater for 2 minutes while proposing to his girlfriend, Kenesha Antoine.

Antoine reported the tragic news on her Facebook page on Sept. 20. She said the couple took a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the East African nation where they stayed at an underwater resort.

The couple booked a submerged room at Manta Resort on Pemba Island, where they watched marine life swim by their hotel window.

Antoine filmed Weber swimming to their hotel room window and presenting a note inside a Ziplock bag.

The note read, "I can't hold my breath long enough to tell you everything I love about you, but everything I love about you I love more every day."

The other side of the note read: "Will you please be my wife? Marry me???" Weber then swam out of the camera frame.

He passed out and died from elevated carbon dioxide levels in his blood before he could reach the surface. Weber never got the chance to hear Antoine's response.

Antoine wrote a heartbreaking tribute to Weber on Facebook.com.

"You never emerged from those depths, so you never got to hear my answer, Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!"

She continued: "Yes, we were, my perfect love, my angel, my soul. Yes, we were, and I will carry the blessing of the love we shared with me forever. I will find you and marry you in the next lifetime, and the next, and the next, and the next… I love you so much, and I always will."

Weber worked at St. Christopher’s Addiction Wellness Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He also worked part-time as a DJ.

Antoine is a successful attorney in Baton Rouge, according to her official website.
