Man Dies After Being Pulled From Lake

KSAL StaffAugust 26, 2014

A 47-year-old Wichita man who was pulled from a Kansas lake after going under while swimming has died.

Tinajera Campos was swimming with friends at Santa Fe Lake near Augusta Sunday night when he started to gag.

Campos was being taken to the shore of the lake’s swimming area when authorities arrived and began lifesaving efforts. He was taken to Kansas Medical Center in Andover, where he was later pronounced dead.

Witnesses reported Campos was underwater for about four minutes.

Augusta Police Chief Tyler Brewer says an autopsy was conducted Monday to confirm the cause of death, which has not been released.
