Two people are injured after a kayak capsizes on the Benton County side of Lake of the Ozarks.

According to the Highway Patrol’s water division, 19-year-old Camille Vandergriff of Kansas was rowing in Turkey Creek Cove when she capsized and went into the cold water.

20-year-old Seth Arvesen, also from Kansas, attempted to help Vadergriff out of the water and ended up falling out of his Kayak.

Both Vardergriff and Arvesen were not wearing a life vest and were helped out of the water by a passing boater, who took them to the nearest dock.

They were then taken to Research Hospital for treatment.
