The Actress Headed to Lake Piru with Plans to BBQ with Her Son Josey Hollis Dorsey

However, she changed her mind and rented a pontoon boat for a three-hour stint instead.

The two decided to jump into the water for a swim.

Shortly after, they jumped into the water, but Naya told Josey to get back on the boat. She then helped him up


Once Josey was back to the boat, he heard his mom 'yell 'Help' and saw her put her arm in the air.' She then disappeared into the water.

The boat rental worker later found the boy alone, and Rivera was reported missing.

A section of the autopsy report said:

"The child indicated that they entered the water… After he was back on the boat, she yelled 'help' and then went underwater."

As a Los Angeles native, Naya grew up about 20 miles from the Ventura County Lake.


According to the report, the actress's mother, Yolanda, said Naya had often been to the lake and knew how to swim.

Naya didn't have any known medical conditions except vertigo, which would worsen when she gets in the water.

She had been treated for vertigo in the past at Cedars Sinai. She had also been controlling her symptoms, which include vomiting, with antihistamines.

The Autopsy Also Re-Confirmed the Cause of Naya's Death As 'Drowning' And Called It an 'Accident'

Ventura County Medical Examiner's office had earlier said in a statement:

"The autopsy findings are consistent with a drowning. The condition of the body [was] consistent with the time that she submerged."

"No traumatic injuries or disease processes were identified at autopsy. There is also no indication from the investigation or examination that drugs or alcohol played a role."

The report added that Naya never had any suicidal ideation, according to her mother.
