Third body found after boat collision at California-Arizona border

Body of 3rd victim of Colorado River boat crash recovered

The search continued Tuesday afternoon for one other boater missing since the Saturday night crash on a popular stretch of the Colorado River near the California-Arizona border.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office Division of Boating Safety will continue to search for Kirra, Raegan, and one male victim who are all still missing.

Mortensen says Lewis was a California resident, but her hometown hasn't been determined.

Lewis was among more than a dozen people ejected from the boats in the crash Saturday night.

No one on the boats was wearing a life vest, Mohave County Sheriff Doug Schuster said, adding that use of life vests is not mandatory but is recommended.

Lewis was missing since about 8 p.m. Saturday, when a northbound Hallet boat carrying 10 people collided with a southbound Sleekcraft, which carried six people, according to officials. The accident happened nearly 300 miles east of Los Angeles along part of the river that runs along the border of California and Arizona.

Some of the reporters' supporters shouted "let them speak" and jostled with police as they were driven back to prison. The UN's resident and humanitarian co-ordinator in Myanmar Knut Ostby also condemned the incident.

Nine people were injured, including two people who suffered critical injuries in the incident less than 15 miles (24 km) south of the California town of Needles, the sheriff's office said.

Some of those on the boats apparently were thrown into the water by the force of the collision or jumped, and were swept down the river. The river's water can range from shallow to 30 feet deep.

One of the vessels sank and the other was heavily damaged. Officials deemed it too unsafe to allow divers in the water after dark but planned to resume their search Sunday morning.

After the shocking collision other recreational boats nearby converged on the scene and downstream to help rescue victims.

Helicopters have been deployed, and authorities have scoured the shoreline to try to find them.

The Sheriff's Office will continue patrolling the river until they locate the last missing person, according to the statement.
