MARANA, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities say a woman who was swept away in a flooded southern Arizona wash during heavy monsoon rains has been found dead.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say the body of 52-year-old Angelina Carrasco was recovered Friday.

They say the car she was in was found upside down and partially submerged in a flooded wash in Tucson.

Sheriff's deputies got a call from a motorist stuck in a wash early Friday. The man was able to get out, but heard another man yelling for help and saying his legs were broken.

Rescuers in the Marana community north of Tucson found that man on a bank surrounded by water hours later. He says he had been there for hours but his wife was swept away.
