— -- One person died and eight others were rescued after a boat went over a dam in Maryland, authorities said.
Local residents reported the situation at Lake Linganore Dam at about 6:30 p.m. after hearing people calling for help, Frederick County Fire and Rescue Captain Kevin Fox told ABC News.
"Some of the neighbors in the area heard people calling out for help and they noticed the people clinging to the rocks and also on the dam's ledge, calling for help," Fox said.
Workers were still attempting to recover the body of the person who died, Fox said.
The accident occurred amid heavy flooding concerns in the region. Flood warnings remain in place for sections of Frederick County.
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is leading the investigation into the accident.
