FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Investigators have identified the man found dead in a Central Fresno canal.

Firefighters and police officers were called to the Dry Creek Canal off H Street and Arroyo Avenue around 6:30 Wednesday morning.

That's where they found the body of 60-year-old Ruben Aguilar pinned against a dam that reduces water flow in the canal.

Authorities believe his body had been in the water for some time.

First responders are reminding everyone to stay out of canals.

They say water may look calm on the surface, but it's moving fast and can quickly sweep you under.
