PEORIA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) – Peoria Fire and Medical says they have already been dispatched to more drownings at Lake Pleasant this year than all of last year after a fourth person drowned yesterday.

“The point is that we’re only in May, and we have already exceeded the number that we had last season, and so it’s going to be a busy, busy year,” said Captain Mark Barbee with the Peoria Fire and Medical Department.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office says none of the drowning victims wore life jackets.
