A 22-year-old Mexican citizen, Adolfo Conchas-Rodriguez, died while swimming at the Cottonwood Cove swim beach on Thursday, May 29th. Conchas-Rodriguez was attempting to swim to the buoys north of the launch ramp when the accident occurred. He was not wearing a life jacket. Friends and family members noticed they could no longer see him; they swam out to try to find him and discovered his body in about 10 feet of water. Cottonwood Cove is located on the Nevada side of Lake Mohave. Conchas-Rodriguez was in the area visiting family members from North Las Vegas, Nevada. At this time, rangers do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor in this presumed drowning. The Clark County Coroner will make the official determination about the cause of death. This is the second drowning and 12th fatality this year at Lake Mead.
