One man died and two others were rescued Tuesday night after a canoe capsized on Gervais Lake in Little Canada.

The Ramsey County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday afternoon identified the dead man as 20-year-old Shueming Yang.

Rescue teams arrived at the lake about 7 p.m. after receiving a call that a canoe carrying three people had overturned.

Rescuers pulled two males from the water alive, but could not immediately find Yang, said Roy Magnuson, a Sheriff's Office spokesman. He said Yang went under and did not resurface.

Ramsey County patrol deputies, the county's Water Patrol and Dive Team and Little Canada Fire found Yang's body about 11:15 p.m., Magnuson said. Family members on the scene were notified at the time, he said.
