MINDEN — A search rescue team has recovered the bodies of two Sparks men from Topaz Lake near the California-Nevada line after they apparently drowned over the weekend in a boating accident.
A third man was treated and released at Carson Valley Medical Center after the boat capsized on Saturday in the lake in southern Douglas County.
The victims were identified as 45-year-old Bert Pederson and 50-year-old Jesse Gregory. Scott Wise survived.
An investigation into the accident is continuing. It’s the third drowning incident at the lake in the last seven years.
