Pulaski County search-and-rescue crews look Thursday for the body of a man who drowned when his fishing boat capsized late Wednesday.

Search-and-rescue crews are looking for the body of a man who drowned when his fishing boat capsized late Wednesday in a central Arkansas lake, authorities said.

Three people were in the flat-bottomed boat fishing when it overturned about 9:30 p.m. in a body of water just north of Indian Head Lake in Pulaski County, Arkansas Game and Fish spokesman Keith Stephens said Thursday.

Two people safely swam to shore, but the other became tired and drowned, he said.

The county dive's team was searching for the body Thursday morning as of 11:15 a.m.

The name of the individual who died has not yet been released.
