    Well, if it was pouring rain the way it sounds, they probably didn’t have a window open before the fall. I’ve been hoping they were knocked unconscious, just to spare them the terror. But, maybe someone was conscious enough to open a door or window to try and escape, but the river just swept them away. Or, it’s very possible the windows were smashed either on the way down, or as the car was tossed about in the raging water, banging against rocks and stuff.

    “A woman's body has been found in a Northern California river, where a missing Valencia family's car is believed to be submerged.”

    “Officials initially thought the remains were that of a child, but later clarified that it was a woman.”

    This article is from yesterday:

    Gujarat: Parents of family missing in US hopeful of reunion
    Sandeep’s parents, Babu Subramnium Thottapilly (68) and Rama (62), preparing to leave for the US, said that even 1% chance of their survival is enough to keep their hopes alive.

    “Some parts of the car, like bonnet, have been recovered by local investigating agencies. We are hopeful that the family, which might have been caught in a bad weather, would be found,” said Dilip Irva, a close relative.
    Today's development must be such a blow

    From the article it sounds like the car might have just drifted off the road. Maybe a medical issue, or just a distraction in the car. Looking at that area in Google Maps it doesn't look like a location a driver would pull off to look at scenery. The road shoulder is very narrow.

    "The car kept going straight and it was going off the pavement," he said. "It's on two wheels and I'm going by and it's flipping over."

    Berkowitz said he tried to go down to the embankment.

    "I'm yelling, 'Hello, hello, anyone there?"' he said. "It's horrific."

    Authorities in the US have reportedly confirmed that the woman's body found from the Eel River was that of Keralite Soumya Thottapilly, who along with her husband and two children went missing earlier this month. Manorama News reported on Sunday that the deceased was Soumya, a native of Padamugal in Kakkanad, Kochi.

    A couple of searchers from Shasta county were seriously injured in a single vehicle accident yesterday. Probably exhausted, poor guys. Hope for a speedy recovery.
