Naya Marie Rivera was an American actress, singer, and model. She began her career as a child actress and model, first appearing in national television commercials. After a series of recurring television roles and then guest spots as a teenager, Rivera got her breakthrough role in 2009 as lesbian cheerleader Santana Lopez on the Fox television series Glee (2009–2015). For the role, she received critical acclaim and various awards, including a SAG Award and ALMA Award, as well as earning two Grammy Awards and one Brit Award nomination.

Cause of death

The Glee star Naya Rivera rented a pontoon boat in southern California’s Lake Piru with her son Josey as they both jumped into the water. The child reportedly said that his mom told him to get back on the boat and then he heard her yell, “Help,” before disappearing underwater. Though she saved her son, she was unable to save herself, presumably drowning in the lake.
