The 19-year-old man who died Sunday at Lucky Peak reservoir after he fell off an inner tube being towed by a ski boat and hit the rocky shoreline has been identified.
Armin Cehic died from a skull fracture, the Ada County Coroner’s Office reported Tuesday morning, following an autopsy.
Cehic was on a tube being towed by a boat driven by his father. As the boat approached Goose Neck Bay at about 4:30 p.m., Cehic’s tube swung toward the rocky bank.
Cehic apparently let go as the tube hit the rocky bank, the Ada County Sheriff’s Office said. A second man riding on the tube held on and was not hurt as the tube cushioned the impact.
Never miss a local story.
People on the boat picked Cehic up, began CPR and got him to Barclay Bay, where a doctor and then paramedics took over.
Cehic was taken to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, where he died.
Police said alcohol was not a factor in the crash. It remains under investigation but no charges have been filed.
