A child was also airlifted from the scene.
Of the 13 total victims, five are adults and eight are children, KRDO reported. The extent of their injuries are unclear.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials said they believe the boat overturned just before 8 p.m. due to high winds are search and rescue teams are continuing to operate at the scene.
While 11 victims were taken to the hospital, officials continue to search through water that is between 80-90 ft. deep for a missing adult male.
They are utilizing sonar in an effort to find the missing person, according to the report.
The Pueblo County Coroner’s Office has not yet unidentified the deceased victim, which is believed to be an adult female, officials said.
Officials have asked the public to avoid the North Shore Marina area and boaters on the water have been asked to steer away from the middle channel to avoid creating wake or unsteady waters for rescue teams.
