Monday, September 05, 2011

The person who died after falling out of a canoe has been identified as a Beverly Hills woman.

The accident happened Sunday afternoon at Shaver Lake. The Fresno County Sheriff's Department says 59-year-old Lamia Tansel died after she fell out of the canoe and drowned.

Deputies in a helicopter assisted crews in a boat to pull her from the water -- they performed CPR but were unable to save her.

These pictures were sent to us by Mike Simpson -- who was at the lake Sunday afternoon.
