BOULDER CITY – A Las Vegas man was killed Saturday after cliff jumping near Wishing Well Cove in Lake Mead at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

The Lake Mead National Recreation Area Interagency Communication Center received a call at 1:03 p.m. that Jared D. Jarvis, 28, was severely injured and unresponsive as a result of cliff jumping.

Jarvis’ friends recovered him from the water and transported him to Hemenway Harbor where they were met by Park Ranger/Paramedics and Nevada Department of Wildlife Wardens. He was declared dead at 1:30 p.m.

Preliminary reports indicate alcohol and drug use as contributing factors.

National Park Service Rangers in conjunction with The Clark County Office of the Coroner/Medical Examiner are investigating the incident. The exact location of the incident is still being investigated.

Lake Mead National Recreation Area would like to remind visitors that cliff jumping is inherently dangerous because of such hazards as fluctuating lake levels, uneven canyon walls and unseen submerged objects.
