The Kane County coroner says 26-year-old Dinesh Sudhakar-Uckoo was in a kayak on the Fox River near Geneva on Saturday when the boat went over a dam. Sudhakar-Uckoo was pulled from the water about two hours later and pronounced dead at the scene. The second man was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover.
A preliminary autopsy found the cause of death was drowning pending toxicology results.
Authorities say the two were in Geneva with a group of friends for the kayaking trip. No one else was injured.
The coroner's office is investigating along with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Conservation Police.
