LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a second boy has died after his family's car plunged into Los Angeles harbor, killing his 13-year-old brother.

The family had left a waterfront restaurant Thursday night when their sedan ran off the road alongside a working dock at the Port of Los Angeles, landing upside down in about 30 feet of water.

The boy's parents swam to the surface, but the children weren't breathing when rescuers brought them up. The teen died at the hospital several hours later.

Coroner investigator Joseph Cronin tells City News Service that the 8-year-old boy died Friday afternoon.

Police are investigating the accident.
