SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The bodies of a woman and a young girl have been found after a flash flood from the remnants of Hurricane Pamela swept their vehicles from a low bridge in San Antonio.

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said the 5-year-old girl was in a vehicle with two boys being taken to school, and the 52-year-old woman was taking two other boys to the same school.

Flood-swollen Martinez Creek swept both vehicles from a low bridge early Thursday on the city’s eastern fringe.

The four boys and the man driving the car with the girl were rescued.
