PROVO, Utah - Authorities have found the body of the 4-year-old girl who fell into the Provo River.

Search and rescue crews found London DeDios dead Tuesday at 11 a.m. near Nunn's Park, about a mile from where the girl fell into the river Monday.

Officials said they found the girl's body below the water level stuck under logs.

They said lowering the water levels was critical in finding DeDios.

Her mother, 34-year-old Brenda DeDios, and a witness, 30-year-old Sandy resident Sean Thayne, jumped in the rushing water to try to save her along with four others.

London's father, Benigno Razo, was one of the others who jumped into the river to try to save her.

He was pulled from the river a short time later and survived the incident.

However, DeDios and Thayne were killed in that effort.

They were pulled unconscious from the water three miles downstream near Timpanogos Park and later died at the hospital.

The family is asking for privacy at this time.

A fundraising account has been set for London and Brenda DeDios.
