Man dies in incident near Redington Pass

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson man is dead after jumping into water near Redington Pass.

It happened Sunday around 5:30 p.m.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department said crews were called out after the 30-year-old man did not return to the surface.

Jake Jennings was among a group of people who dove into the water to search for the man. Friends told Jennings the man had jumped, hit his head on a rock and then went into the water.

Jennings said it took about 5 to 10 minutes to find the man. He was pulled from the water, unconscious and not breathing. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

"I dove about 5 different times and in that amount of time, you know, I was there three more minutes in the water. So, it's about 10 minutes of being under water submerged. I just kind of knew," said Jennings.

The victim's name has not been released.
