Bodies found of 3 men who helped rescue child from river
RIO VISTA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities have recovered the bodies of three men who were swept away by a river current in Northern California shortly after helping to rescue a child over the holiday weekend.
The 8-year-old boy was able to make it to shore Sunday, but the three men who jumped in to help were pulled under.
The Rio Vista Fire Department said in a statement Wednesday that the bodies were found Tuesday after two days of searching. A fundraising website says the men lived in Oakland and were originally from Guatemala.
