QUINCY, Calif. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- A 20-year-old from Los Angeles has drowned in Antelope Lake.

Plumas County Sheriff's Office says Jared Lee Freeman had recently moved to Susanville to take classes at Lassen College. On Sunday August 18, at around 3pm, the Plumas Co. Sheriff’s Dispatch Center received a call from USFS reporting a possible drowning victim at the Lunker Landing Day Use area at Antelope Lake with CPR in progress.

Resuscitation efforts failed after several minutes of CPR, and the 20 year old male subject was pronounced dead at the scene.

Plumas County Sheriff's Office says Freeman entered the water alone and swam out approximately 20 to 30 feet and began to yell for help.

Two of the victim’s friends jumped into the water to assist Freeman. Once they swam up to Freeman, they believed he was fine and returned to shore. Freeman began to yell again for help and slipped beneath the surface of the water. PCSO says then about 10 subjects jumped into the water to assist Freeman and brought him to shore.

At this time, it does not appear that alcohol or drugs played a role in the drowning. The case is currently under investigation by the Plumas County Sheriff’s Department.

So much wrong with this story. He wasn't out alone he was racing his friends-that turned their back on him when he told them he needed help, he was under the water for 15 minutes before we could find him and we tried for AN HOUR AND A HALF to save his life. This was the most horrific thing I have ever witnessed and for his "friends" to try to blame the ONLY people that tried to save him while he was still able to call for help for not being able to hold onto him while they were being pulled under with him have a special place in Hell. Good job swimming a foot away from your "friend" and laughing in his face while he begs you to help him. I hope the same image that is forever burned into my memory lives with you every day.
