PIO Sgt. DeeAnn Servey 801-451-4188
On Tuesday, June 20th, 2017 at 9:50 pm Davis County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call for emergency assistance for a possible drowning at the Farmington Pond, located in Farmington Utah. David Senatus, a 23-year-old male, was with his friends when he swung out into the lake using the rope swing that was located there. David surfaced once, appeared to be struggling and then sunk below the surface. His friends tried to recover David but were unable to locate him.
Farmington Police Department, Farmington Fire Department, Davis County Search and Rescue and Davis County Sheriff’s Office assisted in locating David. David was located at 11:38 pm. Unfortunately, resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful. An investigation surrounding the circumstances of his death is currently underway. Initially, it appears that the cold temperature of the water, as well as his inefficiency with swimming, played a role in his passing.
Our heart goes out to David’s family and friends who are dealing with this untimely tragedy.
