A Johnstown police officer has been identified as the man who drowned in Horsetooth Reservoir Monday afternoon. 32-year-old Yuri Thomas was swimming when he went underwater. When he didn't resurface, his wife immediately called 911. Thomas, who had been underwater for almost an hour, was pulled from a spot near a designated swim beach and outside the buoyed area.

Johnstown PD said Thomas grew up on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent and always dreamed of coming to the United States to work as a police officer.
