    They believe that high winds forced the boat to overturn and jolted everyone on board into the water.

    They reported recovering one body, a woman. A child was flown to a local hospital while nine others were also hospitalized.

    Authorities say that the search is still on for one man who remains missing from the incident.

    They believe it could be a long search and that it will be difficult, as they have to search for the missing man through about 80-90 feet of water,‘according to USNews.
