THE BODY of a two-year-old girl was found floating in a river after her father accidentally dropped her while rescuing her drowning mother.
The incident took place at the Inacio River, in the Brazilian region of Tururu, on 25 April.
Emily Vitoria Tavares da Silva was reported missing the same afternoon before her body was found in the river by search teams the following morning.
According to firefighters, the family was enjoying a dip in the river with friends when the young man’s mother got into trouble and started drowning.
Her partner – who was with her daughter – went to her but accidentally let go of her daughter who was swept away by the current.
Firefighters were called to the scene where they searched the area in search of the missing girl.
However, they had to suspend the search shortly after, as it had gotten dark.
The search was resumed the following morning with the assistance of a team of divers who had traveled from the state capital, Fortaleza.
The photos of the scene show that the stretch of river, where the accident occurred, is wide and surrounded by vegetation.
His body was found floating in the water around 10am.
