COLLETTSVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities in western North Carolina are searching for a man swept away in a rain-swollen creek after recovering the body of a 10-year-old girl who had been swimming with him.
The victims were from two Charlotte families who were swimming in a usually calm pool section of Wilson Creek, about 100 miles north of Charlotte.
Authorities say the girl’s body was recovered Saturday evening after being spotted by kayakers about three-quarters of a mile from where she had been swimming.
