Two dead after a boat capsizes in Colorado

High winds caused a boat to flip over on Memorial Day weekend, sending all 13 riders into the water and killing two.

PUEBLO, Colo. — A boat flipped over in high winds on a Colorado lake over Memorial Day weekend, sending 13 people into the water and leaving two dead.

The eight children and three adults were on the large, flat boat at Lake Pueblo State Park when it capsized Sunday evening.

One adult — Jessica Prindle, 38, of the community of Pueblo West — died at the scene, the Pueblo County coroner’s office said.

A Colorado Parks and Wildlife rescue team found a second victim’s body Tuesday morning after an all-night search, the state agency said in a statement. The coroner’s office identified the second victim as Prindle’s husband, 30-year-old Joshua Prindle.

The 11 others in the boat survived and were treated for hypothermia at hospitals, Colorado Parks and Wildlife said in a statement.
