Naya Rivera’s autopsy report details final heartbreaking moments before tragedy

Glee actress Naya Rivera's final moments have been revealed after the publication of her autopsy.

The American TV star was just 33-years-old when she tragically drowned during a lake trip in California with her son.

The four-year-old was found asleep on a boat floating on Lake Piru in the Los Padres National Forest in Ventura County.

Going into detail, the document, which was shared with PA in Los Angeles, stated: "Shortly afterwards Rivera pushed the boy back onto the boat.

"When the child looked back, he saw his mother put her arm in the air and shout 'help'".

The report continues: "Boat rental worker Bryan Tomaszewski went looking for the rented vessel when it was not returned on time and found Josey wrapped in a towel, wearing a life vest and asleep.

"A spare adult-sized life jacket was also on the boat, along with Rivera's possessions including her bag and mobile phone."

According to Naya's mother, the starlet, who played Santana Lopez in Glee, had initially planned on having a BBQ at the lake instead of getting a boat but changed her mind at the last minute.

The report confirms that she had no known medical history “other than vertigo and a recent sinus infection,"

At the time of her death Naya had alcohol and prescription drugs in her system.

The Sun added that the autopsy found: "a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.016.

"She also had levels of low levels of amphetamine, caffeine, diazepam, nordiazepam, phentermine."

In a statement released shortly after her death Rivera's family said: "We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and prayers for Naya, Josey and our family over the past week.

“While we grieve the loss of our beautiful legend, we are blessed to honour her everlasting legacy and magnetic spirit. Naya was an amazing talent, but was an even greater person, mother, daughter and sister."
