MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Iredell County emergency officials say a fisherman drowned and two friends were rescued after their boat began taking on water in Lake Norman.

The incident was reported around 10:30 p.m. Monday on the lake near Mooresville.

Officials say the three men were fishing about 100 yards offshore when water sloshed into their boat. The men jumped out and began swimming toward shore when the boat started sinking.

Officials say another boater rescued two of the men but the third went under the water. His body was recovered early Tuesday.

His name has not been released.
