9 bodies found in Agua Prieta river

AGUA PRIETA, Mexico - There are now nine people confirmed dead as result of a flooded river near Agua Prieta, Mexico that grew so large it swept away several vehicles.

In addition to those found dead, Mexican media reports 25 people were found uninjured while two more people are still missing.

A statement from officials in Sonora State says more than 200 rescue crews were searching Tuesday for those missing in and around the Cabullona River in the municipality of Agua Prieta, which is across the border from Douglas, Arizona.

It says a group of about 35 people in 4-wheel drive pickup trucks and ATVs were leaving the area Sunday when one of the vehicles got stuck in the river. When people in other vehicles tried to help them, the river swept them away.
