"Sometime around 10am this morning, a couple of them decided to split up per group and then Mr. Noh decided to swim across. He apparently suffered some type of cramps and as a result he went under the water. His friends made frantic searches and I think about an hour thereafter, his body was found in the same said lagoon."

In an off camera interview with Noh’s wife, she stated that Noh was an avid fisherman and frequented the area regularly. A postmortem examination to determine the cause of death is scheduled for tomorrow.
