2nd body found on Colorado River after weekend boating accident

Authorities have not released the name of the remaining boater who is still missing, but a GoFundMe account identified her as Raegan Heitzig.

Thirteen people were injured in the crash and one female victim sustained life-threatening injuries.

The others aboard the boats were not seriously injured and did not need to go to a hospital, authorities said.

Divers have recovered three bodies after a fatal, high-speed boat crash on Saturday while another woman remains missing.

They soon found the body of one of four missing boaters, 51-year-old Christi Lewis of California, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Anita Mortensen said by phone.

Dozens of divers from multiple agencies have assisted in the search which, over the past two days, has covered a roughly 5-mile-long stretch of the river, from Park Moabi Channel to Topock Gorge.
