(SACRAMENTO.CBSLOCAL) — STANISLAUS COUNTY (CBS13) — A Stockton man claims he got severely ill and nearly died after swimming in a popular lake, losing 28 pounds in just one week.

Luis Lopez swam at the Woodward Reservoir Regional Park in rural Stanislaus County.

“I couldn’t move; I couldn’t look around, like I was a zombie,” Lopez said.

Now, there’s no sign of his life-threatening ordeal where he says his fever spiked to 107 degrees.
