Authorities search for 3 swept away after Albuquerque storm

ALBUQUERQUE – Authorities were searching for three people who were swept into an arroyo after storms hit Albuquerque.

The search was a recovery mission, not a rescue, AFR Lt. Tom Ruiz told KOAT-TV on Tuesday.

“This was some of the deepest and fastest water we have ever seen,” Ruiz said.

A fourth person who was also swept away by the water pulled themselves out, authorities said.
