TONTO BASIN, Ariz. (CNN) – Rescuers in Arizona found two dead children who were swept away by rushing water. They are still searching for a third missing child.
The two five-year-olds and one six-year-old were in a vehicle with four other children and two adults that were trying to cross Tonto Creek.
Floodwaters overtook the vehicle, which was found almost completely submerged later that night. A woman from the vehicle made it across the creek on her own.
Rescuers saved a man and four children who were stranded on a small island.
