Houston Boy Dies in Flooding

(Houston-ap) -- Houston police divers Friday recovered the body of a teenager who apparently drowned while playing in floodwaters.

Authorities believe the boy and others were in a flooded ditch Friday morning, using an inner tube, when the victim was sucked into a storm drain. Officials say his body was found near where the culvert dumps into Greens Bayou.

The name of the child was not immediately released.

Investigators believe the youngsters were playing near their Houston homes.
