After a second day of searching, a drowning victim in the South Yuba River has been located. Nevada County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Sean Scales says his department reported to the Emerald Pools area, off Bowman Lake Road, near Lake Spaulding, Sunday afternoon….
Scales says he’s not sure 23-year-old Dalton Burgos, from Vacaville, actually went over the falls. But he says Burgos tried to swim across a stretch of the river when he got swept away in the rapids. The body was found about a mile and a half downstream. He says he hasn’t noticed any strong pattern of victims being from outside the county…
Scales says Burgos was swimming with three friends, who reported the incident.
