Authorities have confirmed that a Minneapolis man died two days after being pulled from Lake Nokomis.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner says Jose Antonio Chimborazo-Quizhpi, 39, died on Thursday, June 18, following an incident on the south Minneapolis lake on June 16.
He died at Hennepin County Medical Center, with the medical examiner ruling his death as being the result of freshwater drowning.
He is the third person to have died from a series of water emergencies in the space of two days earlier in June.
On the same day as the incident on Nokomis, two men were pulled from Bde Maka Ska at Thomas Beach, with one of them later dying at HCMC.
Then a day later, a woman was rescued from the water at Minnehaha Falls, but died six days later from complications from drowning.
The City of Minneapolis last week said it was adding lifeguards at Bde Maka Ska Thomas Beach, Lake Nokomis Main Beach and Wirth Lake Beach on weekends from noon to 7 p.m.
Cedar Lake East Beach and Lake Harriet North Beach will also have beaches at times during the week, with hours extended in the event of particularly hot weather.
The city had originally said it wouldn't have lifeguards manning the beaches due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but made the changes following the fatal incidents.
