CASTILE, N.Y. (AP) — Police say they've recovered the body of a 9-year-old boy presumed to have drowned when he and six family members were swept over a waterfall at a western New York park known as the Grand Canyon of the East.

State police say an underwater recovery team found Dylan Giangregorio's body Tuesday. The body of 6-year-old brother Preston Giangregorio was recovered Sunday afternoon.

Police haven't released the names of two men and three girls who were rescued Saturday after going over the 70-foot-high Lower Falls on the Genesee River in Letchworth State Park.

Police have said the seven family members left a designated trail and entered the water above the falls. Swimming in the river is prohibited throughout the park.
