Two dive teams were deployed into Kerr Lake over the weekend after a passenger fell from a sailboat and drowned. The passenger was not wearing a life jacket at the time the incident occurred and fell into an area of the lake where the water depths reach over 80 feet, near buoys 7 and 8, in close proximity to the Ivy Hill Park boat landing.
