SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Crews have recovered the body of a teenager who drowned in Sioux Falls after trying to save her 6-year-old brother from an icy river.

Sioux Falls Fire Chief Jim Sideras says 16-year-old Madison Leigh Wallace's body was found Friday afternoon.

Wallace jumped into the Big Sioux River at Falls Park on Thursday night after her 6-year-old brother either fell into the frothing water or became obscured by the gathering foam. Sideras has said Garrett Martin Wallace was not injured.

The body of a Sioux Falls man who jumped in to help, 28-year-old Lyle Francis Eagletail, has not been recovered.
