A man who drowned at Lake Tahoe on the Fourth of July when he fell from his kayak was identified Wednesday by South Lake Tahoe fire officials as 41-year-old William Weaver of Citrus Heights..
South Lake Tahoe Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Jim Drennan said firefighters were called about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday to Beach Drive in the Tahoe Keys. Drennan said Weaver and his wife were on a double kayak on the water when afternoon wind was producing waves.
The boat capsized and Weaver, who was not wearing a life jacket, went under. Firefighters performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but the Weaver was later pronounced dead at Barton Memorial Hospital in South Lake Tahoe.
