TUNICA, Miss. (WMC) - The body of a 2-year-old boy has been recovered from the Mississippi River in Tunica. He was one of three people inside a car that crashed into the river Sunday morning.

The Tunica County Sheriff’s Office says they found the boy’s body Wednesday, one day after his sister, 5-year-old Brenilah, was found.

Investigators say the children were in a car with 29-year-old Symphony Wilson Sunday morning, who just dropped the kids’ mother off at work at the Fitz Casino, when they crashed into the river. The sheriff’s office says a casino employee jumped into the water in an attempt to save the woman and children.

Wilson’s body was found Monday night.
