Rescuers recover woman’s body in lake

NEW CASTLE — Rescue units have recovered the body of a woman last seen last night when her boat capsized.

Scott Township fire chief Jack Hitchen said divers recovered the body of Nancy Ellen List, 26, of 6074 Old Route 422 Extension about 2:25 p.m. today.

He said she had been fishing with her husband, Michael List, 29, yesterday afternoon in a private lake in the woods off Countyline Road, Scott Township.

Hitchen estimated the boat capsized between 6 and 7 p.m. He said Michael List was able to get out of the lake and go to a nearby house to call for assistance.

Fire departments were dispatched about 8 p.m., Hitchen said.

No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
