Bodies of adult, 2 children pulled from N. Idaho lake

KOOTENAI CO., Idaho – The bodies of one adult and two small children were recovered from Fernan Lake Thursday morning. 

The Kootenai County Sheriff's Dive team recovered the bodies from a vehicle that was found submerged in the lake. 

Officials said reports of the car in the lake came in around 10:45 a.m. A witness said he went to the lake to fish and saw the submerged car. He was visibly shaken up when KREM 2 talked to him, but he said he saw divers pull three people from the car. He said one of the victims was a child.

Detectives are continuing their investigation and notifications are still being made to family members. Officials expect names to be released later in the week.
