Witnesses told authorities that they saw Chagolla jump into the creek voluntarily in an attempt to swim, but he was believed to have been swept away because of the current in the water. First responders attempted to aid Chagolla with CPR, but they were unable to revive him, and that is when he was declared deceased before ever becoming able to be transported to a local hospital.

As this accident occurred just after sunset, it has not been shared whether or not visibility was a contributing factor to the passing of Chagolla.
