LAKE PLEASANT, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - A woman has died after being pulled from Lake Pleasant Saturday afternoon.

Maricopa County Sheriff Office (MCSO) identified her as 53-year-old Christine Fiorini.

Officials with Peoria Fire and Medical say she was found around 12:05 p.m. floating next to the boat she had been riding in near the Humbug Cove section of the lake.

When Peoria Fire Medical units arrived on scene they found MCSO crews had pulled Fiorini out of the water and had began performing CPR on her.

Fiorini was taken to Peoria Hospital by ground transport, according to MCSO. She passed away at the hospital around an hour later at 1:05 p.m.
