Peoria, AZ – UPDATE: Randall Mancebo Dies in Drowning Accident at Lake Pleasant

Peoria, AZ - UPDATE: Randall Mancebo Dies in Drowning Accident at Lake Pleasant

Peoria, AZ (November 17, 2019) – A 55-year-old man who died while diving at Lake Pleasant on Saturday night has been identified, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.

Officials say the man, 55-year-old Randall Mancebo, was diving with a group of five others near Lake Pleasant Harbor when he became distressed underwater. MCSO says Mancebo surfaced from a depth of 60 feet with another diver and became unresponsive shortly thereafter, apparently due to possible issues with his scuba equipment or suit.

A group of divers pulled Mancebo to the shore and began to perform CPR before EMTs arrived at the scene. First responders arrived within minutes and began attempting life-saving measures, but Mancebo was pronounced dead on the scene.

MCSO Sgt. Joaquin Enriquez said lake patrol detectives have taken over the investigation of the drowning incident.

Our condolences go out to the family of Randall Mancebo at this time.

Drowning Accidents in Arizona

Peoria, AZ - UPDATE: Randall Mancebo Dies in Drowning Accident at Lake PleasantUnfortunately, drowning accidents are all too common in Arizona. Many residents have their own pools or engage in outdoor swimming in nearby water sources due to the hot, dry weather throughout the state. And statistically, people living near water or exposed to water hazards are more likely to experience drowning resulting in injury or death.

Oftentimes, tragic, unforeseen circumstances befall victims and their families in the aftermath of drowning accidents. But those affected by these unfortunate incidents can contact a personal injury lawyer, especially when they’ve been involved in drowning accidents due to the negligent actions of other parties.

ELG Law’s premise liability attorneys have years of experience when it comes to seeking justice for victims and their families. If you’ve been injured in a drowning accident that occurred through no fault of your own or lost a loved one in a drowning accident, it’s important to speak to a qualified, compassionate attorney.
