FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 22, 2019

Diver Who Died in Lake Travis Identified

At 1:14 pm on February 21, 2019 TCSO responded to an Assist EMS call for a diver who had reportedly failed to resurface in the Hurst Creek Arm area of Lake Travis. The man was recovered from the water by people in the area and CPR was conducted by medical professionals with ATCEMS. Ultimately, those efforts were unsuccessful and the man was pronounced dead.

The decedent is identified as SEBASTIAN MEDINA-PAGE 38, of Round Rock.

Medina-Page, a project manager/diver was working underwater to repair a broken pump for a private residence.

TCSO is actively investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident. While it is too soon to definitively determine the cause, evidence indicates a significant tangle in the line Medina-Page was tethered to. The investigation is ongoing and a final ruling will not be made until all evidence is collected and processed and the Medical Examiner’s report is finalized.
