August 30, 2012 (Lakeside) -- Authorities have recovered the body of Milt Eisen, 41, who drowned August 26 in the El Capitan Reservoir.
Eisen, manager of the El Cajon Kia dealership, reportedly jumped from a boat into El Capitan reservoir to cool off but was unable to make his way back to the boat. Divers searched the 197-foot-deep for multiple days in conjunction with several agencies.
Eisen was with a woman and a two-year-old child, Fox News reported.
According to San Diego Lifeguard Lt. Nick Lerma, the boat drifted away in a strong current and the man was unable to swim back.
The woman told authorities she could hear him shouting but could not see him due to glare on the water, UT San Diego reported. Her efforts to throw a rope to him were also unsuccessful.
