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.
