Oregon tennis player drowns in diving accident

Oregon tennis player drowns in diving accident.

The University of Oregon confirmed that tennis player Alex Rovello died in a diving accident Saturday in the Willamette National Forest.

Friends and bystanders tried to rescue the man after he failed to surface in the Blue Pool at the base off the falls. The depth of the pool and the 37 degree water hampered the rescue effort.

A memorial service is planned for  May 18th.
