Friends Remember Kayaker, Rameses Huerta
For the first time, we're hearing from the friends of the young man who died saving his girlfriend in Geneva Lake last week.
The kayaker, Rameses Huerta leaves behind a young daughter. His friends remember his big heart and smile.
"I'm still shocked. I just can't believe he's really gone," said Eduardo Aranda.
"He was never upset. He was always happy to see his friends," said Marcos Cortes.
Aranda and Cortez played soccer with Huerta growing up. Cortez spoke to Huerta at the gym the day before the accident.
"I was going to leave but something told me to go over and talk to him," said Cortes.
He will now cherish his last moment with his big-hearted friend.
"I said my last goodbye, and that was the last time I ever got to talk to him."
The news doesn't seem real for Zach Miller either.
"He got a phone call and looked at me all teary, crying, and told me Rameses has passed away," said Miller.
He will now cherish the memories of Huerta's big smile.
"I will always remember how happy he was," said Miller.
