The body of a fourth missing person was found Sunday from a boat crash on the Mississippi River near Burlington, Iowa early Saturday morning.
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources said four bodies were
found Sunday within 100 yards of the crash site, where the river is 10 to 12 feet deep. DNR officer Paul Kay said the victims were three men and a woman, all believed to be in their 20s. Their names have not been released, pending notification of their families.
Along with the four missing, eight people were injured when two jon boats, flat-bottomed boats often made of aluminum, crashed in the O'Connell Slough area of the river around 1:45 a.m. Saturday. One of the boats was carrying 11 people, the other had a single passenger.
