Swimmer Drowns At Prineville Reservoir

PRINEVILLE, OR -- A 20-year-old died in Prineville Reservoir Saturday. Crook County Marine deputies responded at about 5 p.m. to a report of a swimmer who went under water and didn’t resurface. Witnesses say Oscar Chavez Salazar was on his way back to shore when he went under.

Due to Saturday's lightning storm, the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office dive team was unable to respond, for safety reasons. Crook County deputies continued the search and Sunday morning the DCSO dive time recovered his body near where he was last seen.
