Naya Rivera is an American actress. She is 33 years old. She has her first TV role when she is 4 years old. Rivera’s best known role is in the TV show ’Glee’. Rivera plays in the show for 6 years. Rivera is a singer, too.

On Wednesday, Rivera takes a trip with her son. Her son is four years old. Rivera hires a boat in California, USA. She and her son go on a lake.

Later, police find the boat. Rivera’s son is in the boat. However, police do not find Rivera.

Officials think that Rivera dies in the lake. It is not easy to interview her small son. Police helicopters and divers try to find Rivera’s body in the lake.

Difficult words: hire (when you pay money to be able to use something, usually a car or boat), interview (to ask somebody questions), diver (a person who swims under water).
