Bodies of 2 missing jet skiers found in Utah Lake
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah. — The bodies of two men reported missing after going jet skiing on Utah Lake were found Sunday, authorities said.
Searchers found the body of one man at around 9:30 a.m. and found the second man soon after. The men, brothers believed to be in their 30s, were wearing life vests for the outing on the state’s largest freshwater lake, Sgt. Spencer Cannon of the Utah County Sheriff’s Office told KTVX-TV.
“We don’t know yet if there may have been some kind of injury involved, that precipitated before them going into the lake, or if they simply fell off their watercraft,” he said.
According to Cannon, there was some wind on the lake at night but it was not severe. The water temperature is about 57 degrees, making it difficult to do well in the water for very long, he said.
The wife of one of the men called to report them missing at around 1:30 a.m., Cannon said.
