ORANGE, Calif. (AP) - Divers are searching for a 60-year-old man who fell from a boat into an Orange County lake and went under the water.

An Orange County Fire Authority official said the man was fishing with a friend in Irvine Lake when he fell into the water about 5:45 p.m. Saturday.

Capt. William Lackey said the friend dove in trying to rescue the man but was unable to pull him back into the boat.

Lackey said the missing man wasn't wearing a life vest.

He said the water where the man fell in is about 30 feet deep, but visibility is limited to about 4 feet.
