August 5, 2018

MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. (AP) — One person was killed and three others were injured when a boat capsized on a popular recreational lake in northern Arkansas.

Arkansas Department of Emergency Management spokesman Dan Noble says the accident happened Sunday afternoon on Lake Norfork, a popular fishing and camping destination just south of the Missouri border.

Authorities say one of the injured people was airlifted to Baxter County Regional Medical Center in critical condition. The other two survivors were listed in stable condition after being taken by ambulance to a hospital. No one else was on the boat.

Additional details were not immediately available and none of the people involved have been identified. Noble says the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and local law enforcement authorities were involved in rescue and recovery efforts.
