Death Toll from Floods in Spainís Mallorca Hits 12, Search for Child Ongoing

SANT LLOREN« DES CARDASSAR, Spain Ė Emergency services working in the aftermath of severe flash-flooding that struck eastern portions of the Spanish Balearic island of Mallorca confirmed on Thursday they had found two more bodies, bringing the death toll to 12, while the search for a missing five-year-old boy was ongoing.

Response teams on the island said the two bodies were discovered near the town of Arta not far from a car washed away by the deluge that is thought to belong to a German couple named locally as Petra and Mike Kircher, who have been missing since the fierce rainstorm on Tuesday night.

The search for a missing five-year-old boy whose family car was swept up by a flash flood in the Sant LlorenÁ des Cardassar, one of the worst-hit zones, was ongoing. The childís mother saved his eight-year-old sister during the ordeal but lost her own life in the process, witnesses said.

Heavy rain dumped on the islandís eastern Llevant Peninsula on Tuesday and storms raged through the night, filling the streets of towns and villages perched on the hillside in the region with fast-flowing floods crammed with debris.

Among the confirmed dead are six Spaniards, two Brits and a Dutch woman.

Four bodies were found in Arta, two in síIllot, two in Son Carrio and three in Sant LlorenÁ, emergency services said.
