A recent flash flood in Arizona killed nine people in a river canyon. By the time a surge of water reached a rocky swimming hole several miles downstream, it was a roaring torrent 6 feet high. The family celebrating a birthday had no chance to escape. The bodies were found up to 2 miles away. Five other people were rescued. Among the victims were three generations of a family, five of them children.
