FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- We now know the names of the two cousins who died in a northeast Fresno pond.

They have been identified as 18-year-old Angel Manuel, and 9-year-old Gonzalo Araiva.

Fresno Police were called out just after 12:30 Saturday afternoon to the Fort Washington Beach Campground on Lanes Road.

They say Araiva was in the water and didn't come back up.

That's when Manuel went in after him but didn't return to the surface.

Firefighters were able to pull the two out and rush them to the hospital, where they both later died.

Officials believe the two got trapped in some underwater weeds.
