The investigation revealed Joshua Moreaux, 22, Orange, TX, was kayaking with a group of friends when they decided to take a break under the I-10 bridge. Moreaux got out of his kayak and began to swim.

Witnesses say they could see he was struggling so one of them swam out to Moreaux in an effort to help him but was unsuccessful.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Marine Division was called out to the scene where they used all of their resources to locate Moreaux and around 10:25 p.m. the CPSO divers recovered his body.
