The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the death of 16-year-old Andrew Nicholas Deshane, of Needles, Calif.
Authorities believe the boy’s death is a drowning, and no foul play is suspected at this time.
On Friday, Deshane and three other juvenile friends jumped from the K Street Bridge into the Colorado River about 9:38 p.m. Friday. Initial investigations determined three of the juveniles swam to shore but Deshane had difficulty and didn’t make it to shore.
SBCSD launched a search on the water, beneath the water and on the shores of the River.
On Saturday about 9:42 a.m., the agency’s dive team located Deshane’s deceased body on the river bottom and recovered him.
The agency’s Coroner Division is investigating the exact cause of death.
