LAKE HAVASU CITY, Arizona (AP) -- The bodies of two Utah men have been recovered from Lake Havasu.

Authorities say the bodies of 25-year-old Patrick Wilburn of Centerville and 27-year-old Michael Christopherson of Farmington have been recovered.

Deputies say state-of-the-art sonar equipment helped divers to locate the bodies, which were submerged.

The third passenger, 23-year-old Corey Christopherson, survived and was taken to a hospital in Phoenix. He remains in critical but stable condition.

The men had been missing since a Saturday evening boating accident in which their boat became airborne and then broke apart when it hit the water again.

It's still unclear who was driving the boat.
