JUAB COUNTY -- Family members are mourning the loss of an 18-year-old boy after he drowned in Yuba Reservoir.

The Juab County Sheriff's Office says Hunter Goold, of Citrus Heights, Calif., dove off a cliff near the Painted Rocks boat ramp Wednesday evening and was going to swim to a boat.

The boat was about 25 feet away when witnesses say he went under. A dive team recovered his body three hours later.

According to his family, Goold suffered from epilepsy, and it is suspected that he had a seizure while he was in the water.
