Body of second boy pulled from river in Yosemite
YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) – Yosemite National Park officials say search-and-rescue crews have recovered the body of a missing 6-year-old boy who was swept away in the Merced River along with his elder brother.
Park spokesman Scott Gediman says Jacob Adams’ body was found Thursday morning by a ranger, wedged under a large boulder about 50 yards down river where he went missing.
The two boys were swept away last Wednesday on a popular but treacherous stretch of the river on the Mist Trail. Hikers pulled the body of 10-year-old Andres “Andy” Adams that same day, about 150 yards downstream from where the family entered the water.
