LAKEVIEW (AP) — Authorities recovered the body of a 22-year-old man from Indian Lake after responding to a call about a sinking boat early Sunday.
An Ohio Department of Natural Resources statement said eight of the nine people on the boat were rescued.

Officials said no additional details were available.
