A flash flood sent water rushing through Cummins Falls on Sunday, prompting crews to rescue dozens of people from the area.
On Monday morning, emergency crews recovered the body of a 2-year-old boy who was reported missing Sunday afternoon.
This is what we know so far:
What happened to Steven Pierce? Steven Pierce of Eddyville, Kentucky, was at Cummins Falls State Park with his family when water rushed through the area about 5 p.m. Sunday. Steven and his father were a couple hundred yards downstream from the falls when water inundated the gorge, rising by several feet in a matter of minutes. Both were swept away and crews were able to find Steven's father Sunday night.
Pierce’s body was found Monday morning Rescue crews resumed their search about 6 a.m. Monday, and Pierce’s body was found a little more than an hour later. Authorities said Pierce’s body was recovered not far from where he and his father were swept away Sunday.
