LAS VEGAS (AP) - Parks officials say one person has been hurt and five others rescued after a boat sank on Lake Mead in windy conditions.
Lake Mead National Recreation Area spokesman Andrew Munoz says
the boat sank near Castle Cove on Thursday.
He says the National Park Service sent rangers to pull six people from the water after a jet skier went to the Las Vegas Boat Harbor to report the accident.
Munoz says one person had serious injuries and an ambulance was waiting at Hemenway Harbor. He didn't have additional details.
Winds reached speeds of up to 35 mph and the water swelled up to 4 feet at the lake on Thursday afternoon.
