Two adults and a child are dead after drowning at Lake Norman State Park, according to Iredell County EMS.

Crews were responding to State Park Road in Troutman, where dive teams continued their search for an adult and child in the water. It appears that four adults and two children were involved in the incident.

A 50-year-old woman’s body was recovered from Lake Norman on Sunday evening. The child they are still looking for is 11 years old, according to Iredell County officials. Officials planned to continue the search until about 10 p.m. Sunday, but said they might have to continue their search in the morning.

A 5-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition, along with two adults in stable condition.

No details have been released about what happened on the lake, but all of the victims were reportedly at the lake together.
