MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Family and friends are preparing for a double funeral this afternoon for a mother and daughter killed in the interstate bridge collapse in Minneapolis.
The bodies of Sadiya Sahal and her 22-month-old daughter were recovered by Navy divers more than a week after the August 1st collapse. Sahal, who was five months pregnant, was on her way to pick up a friend who needed a ride to work when the bridge collapsed.
Eight people have been confirmed dead.
At the site, authorities say Navy divers are working to clear up debris dumped into the river by a storm that passed through the area this morning.
The divers are trying to get back into water to continue the search for at least five people who remain missing.
