HESPERIA, Calif.( AP)– A Southern California man drowned when he jumped into an aqueduct to save his 9-year-old kid after the young boy crashed his bike and fell in the hurrying water, authorities said Monday.

When reacting deputies couldn’t discover the man, they employed a dive team. Rescuers searched the water for nearly 2 hours prior to recovering the body of Osbaldo Rodriguez, 31, a brief distance downstream.

” This male did what any sensible person would do under these circumstances, he saved his boy,” Bachman wrote in a sheriff’s department declaration. “This is a very tragic accident.”

The aqueduct about 80 miles (130 kilometers) northeast of Los Angeles is popular with bicyclists, walkers and joggers. Bachman alerts that individuals should use care because the water can be cold and swift-moving, and the sides of the waterway are slippery.

A guy drowned last February after saving his dog from the rushing water. In March, a female and 2 of her 3 young boys died when their car crashed through a fence and into the water. Another female passed away in September after her cars and truck plunged into the aqueduct.
