A makeshift memorial is growing after a father drowned in a lake at Cerritos Regional County Park on Sunday.. The man went to the lake with his family to celebrate the day and do a little fishing. Witnesses say the man jumped in to try and swim across the lake, and when he got in trouble, three men jumped in after him to try and save the guy's life. The Good Samaritans apparently couldn't hold on to the man, and his body had to be pulled from the water by rescue divers later on. He was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The man was in his 40s and witnesses said that he had been drinking alcohol.
