Diver helping with search for Oakland man drowns
REDDING, Calif. (KGO) -- A veteran diver lost his life while searching for an Oakland man believed to have drowned while swimming in Lake Shasta.
The salvage diver is identified as Ken Smith. He died Sunday while trying to free an underwater remote-operated vehicle that was being used in the search.
The San Francisco Police Department had sent that vehicle to help in the search for 18-year-old Robinson Sok of Oakland.
Sok was last seen Friday morning when he jumped in the lake to help a friend who was struggling in the water.
