Body pulled from water ID’d as former isle man


LAS VEGAS >> Authorities identified a swimmer whose body was recovered from a Colo­rado River reservoir as an 18-year-old who grew up in Hawaii and played football for Radford High School before moving to Las Vegas.

The Clark County coroner reported Friday that Jameson Kawika Pasi­gan died Thursday afternoon near Nelson’s Landing, a popular Lake Mohave cliff-jumping site.

The coroner says a ruling on the cause and manner of Pasi­gan’s death will take several weeks, pending toxicology test results.

Police divers recovered Pasi­gan’s body after friends reported him missing beneath choppy waves a little before 4 p.m.

Lake Mead National Recreation Area officials say Pasi­gan was swimming across Morning Star Cove with a friend when winds kicked up to about 20 mph and waves reached 1 foot high.
Officials say Pasigan wasn’t wearing a life jacket.
