Deputy Sheriff Carlos Francies drowned in Lake Tahoe, near South Lake Tahoe, while attempting to rescue a friend who appeared to be in distress.

Deputy Francies jumped from his paddleboard into the rough water to assist the man but quickly went under the surface. Another member of the group attempted to throw a life jacket to him but it did not reach him. The group was able to pull him to surface and move him to the shore, however, they were not able to revive him.

Deputy Francies had served with the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office for 3-1/2 years.

To share the exact same birthday with you is just honorable enough. Having the opportunity to mentor your sister while in the academy, as well as reflect on the guidance you gave me when I interviewed for your department will always stick in the back of my mind. Now I have the honor to be sworn in and take the same oath you took, and become an outstanding officer as you were to others. We miss you Diamond, We will take it from here brother.
