Searchers find teen’s body in creek

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Searchers in Iowa have recovered the body of a teenage girl who died when raging floodwaters swept three cars off a road near Des Moines.

Polk County Deputy Keith Onley says divers recovered the body at 2:20 p.m. Wednesday, about 10 hours after the cars were washed off the road between Altoona and Mitchellville.

Onley says the girl’s body was found in a creek near the submerged cars. He declined to identify her.

Emergency crews were able to rescue 10 of the 11 people who had been in the cars when they were swept off the road about 4 a.m. They found them clinging to trees and hanging onto logs. Four were taken to the hospital.

Officials have said the fast-flowing waters hampered efforts to find the girl who died.
