Diver helping with search for Oakland man drowns

REDDING, Calif.

The salvage diver is identified as Ken Smith. He died Sunday while trying to free an underwater remote-operated vehicle that was being used in the search.

The San Francisco Police Department had sent that vehicle to help in the search for 18-year-old Robinson Sok of Oakland.

Sok was last seen Friday morning when he jumped in the lake to help a friend who was struggling in the water.
