One person is dead and another injured after a canoe overturned on the Dan River on Sunday afternoon.
The incident involving two people in the canoe happened behind the Danville Family YMCA, said Danville Police Department Capt. Jerry Pace.
One person died and the other survived, Pace said.
The Danville Life Saving Crew, Danville Fire Department, Danville Police Department and the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources, formerly the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, responded to the incident shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday.
The fire department responded with four engines, a ladder truck and four support vehicles to several locations along the river, according to a news release from the fire department.
