UPDATE: Second body recovered at Spiritwood Lake

Chad Kaiser, Stutsman County sheriff, said a second body was recovered at Spiritwood Lake at about 9 p.m. Monday. Another body had been recovered earlier Monday by search and rescue crews.

The recoveries followed an incident in which a canoe carrying three people had capsized in the early morning hours Monday. The third man was able to swim to safety.

Kaiser said two remote-operated vehicles were used in the search and recovery operation along with sonar equipped boats from the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, Stutsman County Dive Team and one boat on loan from Gun and Reel.

Names of the victims have not been released pending notification of relatives.
