BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An 80-year-old Idaho man died and another man was treated at a hospital after their boat capsized in the Salmon River Reservoir.

KBOI reports the deceased man has been identified as Eugene Holm of Heyburn.

Twin Falls Search and Rescue members found the other man first after responding to a report of the capsized boat Friday morning.

The man was transported to a hospital.

Responders found the boat Friday night using sonar. They marked the location with a buoy and returned the next day to resume the search.

Holm’s body was recovered from the boat Saturday afternoon.
