For reasons that authorities still have not determined the canoe, which has an outboard motor, turned over and threw the pair into the lake.
Though Kolomitz was able to pull Spisak to shore and perform CPR, she nevertheless died from her injuries.
The report says that David Jones, owner of DJ’s Kayak Rentals, says that the kind of canoe the pair was using can be difficult to turn upright after tipping over.
