houston, Sheriff confirms death of six family members in Houston

Volunteers and officers from the neighborhood security patrol help to rescue residents in the upscale River Oaks neighborhood after it was inundated with flooding from Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas.

Police in Houston said Wednesday they have recovered the bodies of six family members whose van was swept away in flooding unleashed by Harvey over the weekend.

“We have a total confirmed six dead here at the scene inside this van,” Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez told a press conference after receding floodwaters allowed them to locate the vehicle.

Manuel and Belia Saldivar and four of their great-grandchildren ranging from six to 16 years in age went missing Sunday as they were attempting to escape rising waters.
