Flash flood kills 9 at Arizona swimming hole; boy still missing – Chicago Tribune

Authorities say they have found nine bodies and are only looking for one more person among a group who got swept up in a furious flash flood in the Tonto National Forest in Arizona.

Gila County Sheriff’s Detective David Hornung told The Associated Press that all of the victims were among a group of 14 family and friends from the Phoenix and Flagstaff areas who had met up for a daytrip along the popular Cold Springs swimming hole.

A 13-year-old boy remains missing.

The search and rescue crews, including 40 people on foot and others in a helicopter, have recovered the bodies of five children and four adults.
