(KSL News) -- Search crews this afternoon recovered the body of a young Taylorsville man who died in a boating accident on Utah Lake.

Joseph Lawrence jumped out of a sailboat Sunday to fix its rudder, and he drifted away. He was with his brother, who tried unsuccessfully to pull him back into the boat.

Dozens of people helped in the search by on the ground, on the water and in the air.
