At least four people were found dead and about a dozen more are missing after flash flooding poured over a popular swimming area inside the Tonto National Forest in central Arizona.

Water Wheel Fire and Medical District Fire Chief Ron Sattelmaier said more than a hundred people were in the Cold Springs Swimming Hole on Saturday afternoon when a severe thunderstorm struck in a nearby remote area that had been burned over by a recent wildfire.
Three bodies were recovered on Saturday and another was found on Sunday morning. The deaths include at least one child.
Four people rescued by helicopter on Saturday were taken to the hospital for hypothermia.
About a dozen other people remain unaccounted for.
