AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The body of a woman who reportedly jumped into a canal in Avondale has been recovered by authorities.
The Arizona Republic reports the woman allegedly jumped in behind a car wash near McDowell Road and 99th Avenue on Saturday morning.
Firefighters from Phoenix and Avondale say she was dead by the time they reached her in the water half a mile away.
Avondale Fire spokesman Steve Ellsworth says the body had been moving at a high rate of speed and was found floating face-down.
Phoenix police say no foul play appears to have been involved.
The county medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
