The summer weather is about to heat up this week, sending more Iowans for relief near rivers and lakes. A weekend accident at Lake MacBride should serve as a reminder to use caution when swimming and boating.

Johnson County officials received a call about a canoe overturning on Lake MacBride near Solon on Friday afternoon. KWWL reports that the two occupants went into the water at around 3:45 p.m. Friday. Sheriff's officials responded and began a search and rescue operation along with the Johnson County Metro Dive Team. The victims were recovered that evening at 6:50 p.m. and 7:04 p.m. respectively.

The victims have been identified as 28-year-old Suad Al Yasiri and 23-year-old Willie Davis, both from Cedar Rapids, according to KWWL. Neither victim was wearing a life jacket at the time of the accident.

The investigation into the incident continues.
