One woman in drowned and a second woman was severely

injured after a boat capsized on Lake Don Pedro on Monday night.

A rescue team was unable to find the missing woman until Tuesday

reservoir, near Fleming Meadows Recreation Area, according to the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office. The deceased woman's

name was being withheld pending the notification of next of kin.
