Divers searched for him on Friday afternoon for several hours but the effort was suspended due to challenging water conditions, Massarelli told Patch.
When Ordonez's body was recovered Saturday, the current was so strong that four divers had to be secured to the shore with ropes to find him, according to The Capital.
"Even the best swimmers struggle at Bloede Dam," the Department of Natural Resources Police said Saturday, tweeting a photo of the sign posted there. The sign says: "Danger, Area Closed to Public Use...Drownings Have Occurred" in English and Spanish.
Five people have drowned at Bloede Dam in the last 20 years, WJZ reported last August, on the heels of a drowning there.
According to ABC 2 News, Ordonez's body has been taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
