"At about 3:45 p.m., the male subject was located at the bottom of the lake in approximately 12 feet of water by personnel from the Lake Havasu City Police Department and the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department marine units", the MCSO statement said.

Officials said alcohol may have been a factor when Raul Gonzalez, 44, jumped into the water to save his 41-year-old old wife, Esmeralda who was desperately trying to stay afloat.

Further investigations determined that the boat, which was occupied by two male adults, a female adult and two young children, had stopped and was floating in the area just west of the Crazy Horse Cove.

Her husband, Raul Gonzalez, then jumped into the water without a life jacket to rescue her, deputies said. "Raul also was not wearing a life jacket. Both were seen struggling in the water prior to them both going under the water's surface and not resurfacing".

Mohave County Sheriff's Waterways deputies responded for a woman that was pulled from the water about 3:25 p.m. Friday and brought to the Crazy Horse Docks. She was unconscious and not breathing. Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene. He was taken to the docks and pronounced dead.

"On July 21st, 2017 we lost two unbelievable people in a tragic accident". The couple had been married for two years and had a 6-month-old daughter named Lulu, according to a GoFundMe account. "Thank you and God bless". Raul had children from a previous marriage and was also a grandfather. "He went through leukemia and he beat it". "Esmeralda and my father were both giving people. They'd meet you on the first day and welcome you in as family", he said.

Autopsy results are pending. The investigation was ongoing.
