Third body found after boat collision at California-Arizona border

Divers returned to the roaring Colorado River on Sunday in search of three people missing and presumed dead after a head-on boat crash along the California-Arizona border that injured nine people, two critically.

The body of Californian woman Kirra Drury was the latest to be retrieved from the Colorado River when police divers pulled the 24-year-old out of the water at about 12.35pm on Tuesday (Californian time).

Authorities found the body of 51-year-old Christi Lewis of Tulare County in Central California on Monday.

Anita Mortensen, a sheriff's spokeswoman, said Monday that investigators had not determined what role speed might have played in the accident. Six other people suffered moderate, non-life threatening injuries and six more had injuries considered minor, the fire district said. All 16 people were ejected into the water and both boats sank.

The collision happened on Saturday night near Arizona's border with California when a boat with 10 people and a craft carrying six people collided.

Authorities have said the police action was carried out to "mitigate the LGBT culture from spreading into our society". It reads: "Homosexual acts are illegal in Malaysia and punishable under federal law, and in some states, shari'a law".

He was transported to an area hospital by ground ambulance before being flown to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, officials said.

Citing an emergency dispatcher whose report was broadcast on local TV stations, the Los Angeles Times reported the boats were traveling at around 50 miles per hour when they collided.

Two other Tulare residents were on the boat - Tabby and Brian Grabowski, family and friends wrote on social media posts.

Rescue crews arrived about 45 minutes after the first calls for help and found more than a dozen people injured, Eric Sherwin, a spokesman for the San Bernardino County Fire Department, said Saturday.

The force of the crash caused one of the boats to sink and the other sustained heavy damage. Four people are still missing, three women and one man, according to Mohave County Sheriff Doug Schuster.

The crash occurred between two popular marinas and near Moabi Regional Park, as people enjoyed the Labor Day weekend.

Helicopters were deployed, and authorities scoured the shoreline to try to find the boaters.

No one on the boats was wearing a life vest, Schuster said. Water depth in the area is shallow in some area but can be as deep as 30 feet in other areas.

Authorities told FOX 5 sister station KTLA the two vessels collided on the river near Topock Gorge and Park Moabi Channel around 9 p.m. Saturday.
