According to authorities Monday, five children were among the nine people killed in a flash flood at a swimming hole in Arizona over the weekend. Police added in a statement that all of the victims were part of an extended family. Reports say torrential rains unleashed six-foot-high floodwaters darkened by ash from an earlier wildfire in the area and swept away the victims, who ranged in ages 3 to 57. The National Weather Service added that up to 1.5 inches of rain fell over the swimming hole in an hour when the thunderstorm hit about eight miles from where the family was. According to search teams, all of the victims’ bodies have been recovered except for one 27-year-old man.
