1 dead, 1 missing, 11 hospitalized after boat capsized on Colorado Lake

Authorities in Colorado said a boat capsized on Lake Pueblo Sunday night, leaving at least one person dead, one missing and 11 victims hospitalized. A child was also flown from the scene.

Of the 13 victims, five are adults and eight are children, KRDO reported.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials said they believe the boat overturned just before 8 p.m. due to high winds and that search and rescue teams are continuing to operate at the scene.

While 11 victims have been taken to hospital, officers continue to search for a missing adult man in water between 80 and 90 feet deep. According to the report, they are using sonar to find the missing person.

The Pueblo County Coroner’s Office has not yet identified the deceased victim, who is believed to be an adult female, officials said.

Officials have asked the public to avoid the North Shore Marina area and boaters on the water have been asked to steer away from the center channel to avoid rescue teams creating wakes or unstable water.
