The Ravalli County Coroner’s office is investigating the drowning of a 28 year-old woman from the Florence area in the waters of Lake Como.

Witnesses attempted to locate the woman after she slipped beneath the water while she was swimming.

Responding to the scene were the Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office and their Search and rescue team, along with Marcus Daly Ambulance Service, and the Darby Marshal’s office.

Search and Rescue team members located the victim about 80 feet from shore in between 10 to 15 feet of water, and after recovering the body she was declared deceased at the scene.

Ravalli County Sheriff Steve Holton said the incident is under investigation, and that the woman’s name will not be released until her next of kin have been located.
