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.

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.
