One man was rescued, but another died, after their canoe capsized Monday night.

The two were fishing from a canoe at Boedecker Lake in Loveland.

Around 8:40 p.m., the canoe capsized.

Someone in a nearby boat was able to rescue the first man, according to Scott Pringle with Loveland Fire Rescue.

However, the second man who was in the canoe disappeared.

Divers were called out. They found the victim, 21-year-old Justin Brien, more than an hour later in water that was eight to 15 feet deep, Pringle said.

The Larimer County Sheriff's Office & Coroner are investigating.
