Kosciusko County, Ind. A 38-year-old woman is dead after drowning in a Kosciusko County lake.

It happened Saturday night on North Little Lake, just north of Silver Lake.

The victim has been identified as 38-year-old Natalie Zellers of Fort Wayne.

Zellers was swimming with her husband when the incident happened. The two were wearing life jackets at the time, but took them off when they got back on the boat.

Once back on the boat, Zellers fell off the front of it, for unknown reasons, and never resurfaced.

Her husband tried to rescue her, while others called 911.

An autopsy was scheduled for Sunday.
