The body of a second man who drowned in Lake Powell last month has been recovered.

Denise Schultz, spokeswoman for the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, reported that National Park Service divers located the remains of John Borden, 58, in about 100 feet of water at the Utah-Arizona border lake on Wednesday.

The Scottsdale, Ariz., man’s body was found in Padre Canyon with the aid of sonar equipment and a remote-controlled underwater video submersible. Borden was last seen jumping into the water on Sept. 24 when his jet ski malfunctioned.

On Oct. 3, divers recovered the body of 40-year-old Pejman Pourhassan. The Salt Lake City man’s remains were found 100 feet below the surface of Gunsight Bay.

Pourhassan had been reported missing the evening of Sept. 21 while trying to come to the aid of a houseboat that had been pushed off-shore by high winds and waves.
