PROVO — Search and rescue crews were called to Utah Lake to help two adults and a child who were in a capsized canoe on Wednesday evening.

Lt. Spencer Cannon with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office says the canoe had capsized because of strong winds about 1/4 mile from the Provo Boat Harbor at around 7 p.m.

Another boat that was in the area was able to pick up the trio minutes after they’d fallen in the choppy waters. All three were wearing life jackets and are in good condition.
