FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say that the parents of ride-hailing company Uber's CEO were riding a boat on Pine Flat Lake when it hit a rock and sank.

The Fresno County Sheriff's office says in a statement that about 5 p.m. Friday, officers were called to the scene of the accident and found a man and woman on a shore of the lake.

The sheriff's office says the woman died at the scene, and the man suffered moderate injuries.  He told officers the boat had sunk.

The sheriff's office says an autopsy of the woman is planned.

Uber identified the couple as Bonnie and Donald Kalanick, the parents of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick. Bonnie Kalanick was 71.

The sheriff's office says crews will try to remove the boat from the lake Saturday.
