PEORIA, AZ (3TV/CBS5) - A diver at Lake Pleasant died Saturday evening after he began to struggle while swimming in the lake.

Maricopa County Sheriff's office spokesman, Sgt. Enriquez, says 55-year-old Randall Mancebo was diving with a group of 10 divers near the Lake Pleasant harbor around 8 p.m. when he began to have difficulties. When pulled out of the water, Mancebo wasn't responsive. 

Enriquez says CPR efforts were made to revive Mancebo. Yet, these attempts to save Mancebo's life were unsuccessful, and he died at the scene.

MCSO Lake Patrol detectives have taken over the investigation.

At this time, MCSO said there are no signs of foul play or suspicious circumstances.
