Man drowns during weekend fishing trip in Hemet

HEMET, Calif.

A man was fishing with two friends on the north shore of the lake Saturday morning, when his fishing line became tangled.

He swam out to try and retrieve it, but couldn't make it back to shore.

Seeing him in distress, one of the man's friends swam out to try and rescue him, but the man drowned before his friend could reach him.

His body was retrieved by divers Saturday afternoon. The victim's name has not been released.
