SAN DIEGO (AP) - The death toll from the crash of a fighter jet has climbed to four after investigators found the body of a child in the ruins of a San Diego home, the coroner's office said.

Fire Department spokesman Maurice Luque says the body of 15-month-old Grace Yoon was found Tuesday n the home where three other family members died.

The Rev. Kevin Lee of the Korean United Methodist Church identified the others killed as Young Mi Yoon, who was in her mid-30s; her 2-month-old daughter, Rachel; and her mother, Suk Im Kim, who had recently arrived from South Korea to help care for her daughter's newborn.

Both engines of a military jet fighter failed before the aircraft crashed and burned in a residential area, killing four people on the ground as it destroyed two houses.
