LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified a Las Vegas man who died while swimming without a life jacket at Lake Mead.

The Clark County coroner said Monday that the cause of death for 46-year-old Carlos Campos will await toxicology test results that typically take several weeks.

The National Park Service says Campos was reported to be in distress while swimming about 1:15 p.m. Sunday at Boulder Beach at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

The death was being investigated as a possible drowning.

Rangers tried to resuscitate Campos, but he was pronounced dead about 30 minutes later.


This story has been updated to change the dateline, add the man’s name and reflect that a cause of death wasn’t immediately determined.
