Colorado can get very hot in the summer. But in July, Fort Collins and the nearby areas reached a high temperature of 87°F. So, everyone decided that the lake would be the perfect venue to cool off. Everyone had the same idea as Mondragon. He had no way of knowing that one of life’s little surprises would end up giving him quite a shock once he was in the water.

All Mondragon wanted to do was feel the cold water of the lake against his skin. So, he walked towards the shore and dipped his toes in the lake. The sensation was so cool that he decided to walk deeper so that his warm, sweaty body could experience the refreshing feeling. But seconds after he went in, he felt the temperature in the lake begin to rise. It was only a matter of time before breathing would become unbearable.

The lake was full of families just like the Mondragon and the Hernandez family. But this didn’t deter anyone from taking advantage of the cool lake. They all figured they obviously came up with a great way to beat the summer heat if this many people were here too. But not everyone got the unpleasant surprise that Mondragon did while he was trying to cool off in the lake.

Mondragon felt like he was in heaven as he stood there, half submerged. But then, things took a horrifying turn for the worst. As he stood there enjoying the cool water, something touched his leg. He didn’t think much of it at first since so many things brushed off against him when the waves hit. But then, the underwater object touched him again with a bit more force. This raised a mental alarm, and then, he noticed something creepy.

He was a bit perplexed at first. Then, he noticed a human foot rising to the water’s surface and he gasped. “It felt like something you normally wouldn’t feel in the water,” Mondragon told USA Today. “I did sort of a back kick to bring up whatever it was. Then I saw the bottom of a baby’s foot float up.” It was the Hernandez’s daughter, Sitlaly.
