Law enforcement resume the search for a missing Iowa State University Crew Club member on Monday at Little Wall Lake in Hamilton County. They recovered the student's body mid-morning.

There is still a lot we do not know about what lead to the drowning of two crew club members from Iowa State University earlier this week. IPR's Clay Masters talks with Ames Tribune reporter Isabella Rosario about some of the details that have come forward since accident happened on Sunday.

It was almost a week ago that an Iowa State University Crew Club boat capsized on Little Wall Lake in Hamilton County. Two members of the club died: 20-year-old Yaakov Ben-David, a sophomore accounting major from Washington D.C, and 19-year-old Derek Nanni, who was a freshman chemistry major from Normal, Ill. Three other members of the crew club who were on the boat survived.
