A 30-year-old woman drowned in Lake Cachuma on Sunday evening.

At 5:12 p.m. Santa Barbara County Firefighters, Sheriff's Deputies, a water rescue team, and a helicopter responded to Lake Cachuma near Bradbury Dam for a report of a missing person who was with a group of visitors.

The search was narrowed to the area where the woman was last seen. A county fire captain dove into the water and found the victim in approximately 20 feet of water. The patient was brought to the surface where emergency medical care was given.

The victim was declared dead at the scene. The identity is being withheld pending the notification of next of kin.

Lake Cachuma Drowning Victim Identified

Sheriffs asked for dispatch of the 'on-call,' to a boat ramp near the dam, so it sounds like there was a drowning. All I heard

Very sad. It is so weird to get this kind of information without explanations of how this happened from responders. With the fact that people aren't supposed to swim in there, makes you wonder did she fall off of something and couldn't swim, get trapped under something?

Sometimes responders don't know or if they do are not at liberty to say. There may be an investigation and the info may come out at a later time.
