On June 8, it was reported that actress Naya Rivera, famously known for her role of Santana Lopez in TV series Glee, went missing in a swimming accident at Lake Piru in California. The actress had gone on a boat with her 4-year-old son Josey. On July 13, five days after the incident, her body was found and the authorities announced her death at the age of 33.

During the press conference, the authorities said that it seemed like the currents were too strong and the boat drifted away. As per the details provided by her son, she saved him but couldn't muster up the courage to save herself. Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said, “It would be speculation to say at this point. There are a lot of currents on the lake that appear particularly in the afternoon. We believe it was mid-afternoon when she disappeared, the idea perhaps being that the boat started drifting, it was unanchored, and that she mustered enough energy to get her son back onto the boat, but not enough to save herself.”

Ayub also said that there is no sign of foul play and or any indication of suicide.

On July 14, a few cast members of Glee were at Lake Piru who joined Naya Rivera's ex-husband Ryan Dorsey and her father at the lake. Glee co-stars Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, and Jenna Ushkowitz as part of the group who wanted to help during the search of her body before the authorities found her.

The day also marked Glee actor Cory Monteith's seventh death anniversary.
