We have a few more details on the accident at Lake Billy Chinook. Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins tells our news partner News Channel 21, a boat was pulling a skier who apparently fell.

 

The accident happened near the Crooked River Bridge this morning.

 

When the boat circled around to pick up the skier, it may have run over the skier.  Witnesses say the driver jumped into the water, bobbing a few times and disappeared.

 

One body has been recovered and identification is being withheld until the family is notified. The second body, which at this time is unidentified, has not been located.

 

Deschutes County Search and Rescue divers have been called to search, along with Warm Springs Police.

1110 KBND will bring you more details when they become available.
