"Naya Rivera is not the first, nor the last to go missing at Lake Piru. Lake Piru is a very deep lake with very bad whirlpools, people have been asking for years for the city to put up warning signs for swimmers. Locals of Ventura County don't go to Lake Piru for this reason," reads the Change.org petition description. "Tourists have no idea what they're getting into. Lake Piru needs signs."

Between 1994 and 2000, seven people drowned in the lake, which is 130 feet (40 meters) deep, reported the Los Angeles Times.
