Body of 61-year-old missing boater found in Orange County lake


ORANGE, California — Divers have found the body of a man who fell from a boat into an Orange County lake and went under the water.

Sheriff's officials says the body of 61-year-old Clarence William Brumfield of Palmdale was discovered late Sunday morning in about 25 feet of water at Irvine Lake, near where he was last seen.

Brumfield was fishing with a friend Saturday evening when he fell in.

Officials say the friend dove in trying to rescue Brumfield, but was unable to pull him back into the boat.

A helicopter crew joined divers in the search, which was called off after dark and resumed at daybreak.

Neither man was wearing a life vest.
