JEWELL, Iowa – A student is dead and another is missing after a boat carrying five members of the Iowa State Crew Club capsized on a lake Sunday morning, the university said.

The incident occurred as the group was practicing on Little Wall Lake, south of Jewell, Iowa, in Hamilton County, according to a news release from the university. 

Three of the students were rescued from the water, treated and released from a local hospital. The body of another student was recovered by a dive team while the fifth student was still missing Sunday evening, officials said. 

Hamilton County Sheriff Doug Timmons said the search was to resume Monday morning after divers looked for the student until nightfall Sunday.

The sheriff’s office said Sunday night that, “out of respect for the students involved they will not be named until the families can be properly notified.”
