Original story:

PULASKI COUNTY, Ark. - Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) rescue crews are searching for a drowning victim in Indian Head Lake Thursday morning after a fishing boat capsized Wednesday night. 

AGFC says three people were night fishing on Indian Head Lake when their boat capsized. 

No life jackets were on the boat when it flipped, officials say. 

All three people fell out of the boat, officials say one person fell under the boat when it flipped. 

AGFC says all three swam safely to shore, but they then had to swim back across the lake to get to their truck. 

While swimming back across one person became tired and drowned.

AGFC is at the scene this morning with divers to find the body. They say the lake isn't large enough to use sonar. 

The family of the victim is at the scene. 

Authorities have not yet identified the drowning victim.
