Police Officer Ronald Siver drowned during a water recovery operation in Irondequoit Bay.

He and several other members of the department's Dive Team were searching for the body of a boating accident victim in a section of the bay that was 75 feet deep, approximately 200 yards north of the Irondequoit Bay Bridge. Two other divers attempted to rescue him and brought him to the surface, but he was not able to be revived.

Officer Siver had served with the Rochester Police Department for 3-1/2 years and had previously served with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office for 4-1/2 years. He is survived by his wife, parents, sister, and five brothers.
