Bear Lake drowning victims identified

FISH HAVEN, Idaho (AP) – A 37-year-old Utah woman and her 11-year-old daughter have drowned in Bear Lake in eastern Idaho.

The Jordan School District in Utah says Jennifer Lambourne of South Jordan taught at Eastlake Elementary and her daughter, Brooklyn, would have been entering sixth grade at the school.

The Bear Lake County Sheriff’s Office says the girl was reported missing Wednesday at the lake that is divided in half by the Idaho-Utah border.

Officials say Jennifer Lambourne and an 8-year-old girl were taken to Bear Lake Memorial Hospital where Lambourne was pronounced dead. The 8-year-old girl was treated and released.

Officials say Brooklyn’s body was recovered from the lake at about 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The sheriff’s office said Thursday it plans to release more information on the drowning.
