Authorities have found the bodies of three

Amish children who were swept away in a creek swollen by heavy

rains in southwestern Kentucky and continue searching for another

child.

A married couple along with seven children were trying to cross

the creek Thursday on a roadway in their horse-drawn buggy when it

overturned knocking them into the water. The couple and three of

the children escaped but four other children under age 12 were

swept away.

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says the bodies of three of

the children - including a 6-month-old - were found Friday around

12:30 a.m. Authorities are still searching for the fourth child.

The rural area is about 25 miles south of Paducah.
