Drowning victim identified

The Pueblo County Coroners offices has identified the drowning victim who died Sunday while swimming at the Pueblo Reservoir. Einn Brasher, 16, went underwater just before 5:00 p.m. in an area known as Hook's Cove on the southwest side of the lake.

This is the second drowning at the reservoir in the past 9 days. Swimming is prohibited in the reservoir, but boating, jets skis and other forms of water recreation are allowed.

Tonight at 5:00 on News First 5, reporter Andy Koen talks with the park ranger about the challenge of enforcing the no swimming rule in such a large body of water.
