HALLS CROSSING, Utah (AP) -- Authorities say a rock slab fell on a boat at Lake Powell, killing one person and probably two.

A woman's body was recovered Friday. Searchers were still looking for the other person, likely a man. He's presumed drowned.

The capsized boat was reported by a witness in an area called Lake Canyon. The witness had waved at the pair just 20 minutes earlier Friday.

The size of the rock slab was estimated at 250 square feet. No names were released, but the boat and a vehicle were registered to an owner in Colorado.
