A Westminster man who worked as a trainer at a Fountain Valley gym died over the weekend when a boat struck him in the water in Lake Havasu.
Eric "Octopus" Norris, 30, was pronounced dead about 6 p.m. Saturday after what authorities called an apparent hit-and-run.
Norris fell off an inner tube while being pulled by a boat across the lake, according to the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department.
While he was waiting for the boat to double back and pick him up, another boat struck him and left the scene.
Jodi Miller, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff's Department, described the other boat as red with white striping, 25 to 30 feet long with a V-hull, and driven by a man with a female passenger.
Miller said it was unclear, based on witness accounts, if the driver saw Norris in the water or slowed down after hitting him.
