Shock waves are still rippling at Millerton Lake.
Many still in shock about last night's drowning.
"It's sad, they should have kept him company to help him out," said Brenda Cardenas.
"It's very tragic; just a reminder to be safe in the water," said John Zamora.
The Fresno County Sheriff's Dive Team continued the search for 27 year old Phillip Johnson at around 9:15 this morning they found his body near the main boat launch area.
His family was right there to witness it all.
They say Johnson was a great swimmer, but park rangers say no matter how skilled you are in the water, anything can go wrong.
"When in doubt put a life vest on. I know strong swimmers when they come to open water, it's not your backyard pool, so they do put a life vest on," said Mark Deleon, State Park Ranger.
After hearing about the drowning John Zamora had second thoughts about bringing his family to the lake today.
"People get into trouble as this lake drains there are obstacles undermeath there you can't see," said Zamora.
Zamora's brother is part of the swift water rescue team and hearing about johnson's death only prompted him to be extra careful in the water.
He makes sure everyone on his boat has their life jackets on.
"Just hearing some of his stories first hand on some of the sad things that could have been prevented makes me think twice," said Zamora.
Others say sometimes it takes a close call to know your limit.
"I almost went into the deep side before, but good thing I was with someone or I think I would have drowned," Cardenas said.
