According to the official autopsy report for actress Naya Rivera , her 4 year old son, Josey, who was with her at Lake Piru when she drowned, revealed what his mom’s last word was. It’s heartbreaking that she was not able to get it at that crucial moment but apparently, the little boy heard his mom say ‘help’ before she went underwater, never to be seen alive again.

The ‘opinion’ section on the autopsy report that was first obtained by HollywoodLife, states what Josey told the authorities ‘that they entered the water and after he was back on the boat, she yelled ‘help’ and then went underwater.’

The same report also confirmed that the cause of death was drowning and labeled it as an ‘accident.’

It goes on to detail that: ‘According to wind records for the lake area, the high wind speed went up to 8 mph and there were wind gusts greater than 10 mph and up to as high as 21 mph on the afternoon. [The area where she was found] had a depth at the lake of about 25-30 feet, with an underwater shelf nearby that was about 65-70 feet deep.’

As you might remember, Naya’s son was found sleeping on the rented boat alone, wearing a life vest, by another boater, hours later.

Ventura County Medical Examiner’s office stated back in July after she was found, that ‘The autopsy findings are consistent with drowning and the condition of the body is consistent with the time she was submerged. No traumatic injuries or disease were identified at the autopsy. There is no indication from the investigation or the examination that drugs or alcohol played a role.’

Naya Rivera, who's best known for her role in Glee, drowned on July 8 but she was only found on July 13 so that is listed as the day she passed.
