An Orem man saved a woman after a kayak accident sent her and her husband into the water at Deer Creek Reservoir on Saturday. Hours later, search and rescue teams found her husband’s body 75 feet under the water.
A 32-year-old Illinois man was kayaking with his wife at the reservoir around 3:20 p.m. when their kayak tipped over. Neither were wearing life jackets even though there were two life jackets in the kayak, said Utah State Parks Sgt. Drew Patterson.
