Coast Guard resuming search after woman falls into Lake Erie

Posted: Updated:

ERIE, Pa. (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies have resumed searching for a Pennsylvania woman who reportedly fell overboard into Lake Erie from a fishing boat driven by her husband.

The Erie Times-News (http://bit.ly/2sU6J2m ) says authorities have not released the name of the woman who fell when the boat was about 2 ¼ miles (3.6 kilometers) northwest of the Presque Isle Lighthouse about 1 p.m. Sunday.

The woman's husband told authorities he was putting fishing nets into the water when the woman fell into the water.

Crews couldn't find the woman Sunday and resumed their search Monday.
