WATCH: Flash Floods In Tonto National Forest, Arizona, That Killed 9 People

A flash flood swept through a swimming hole in an Arizona national park Saturday, leaving nine people dead, including six children as young as 2, NBC News reported.

According to reports, Sgt. David Hornung from the Gila County Sheriff's Department stated that a family composed of 14 members who were spending time near the Cold Springs Swimming Hole were affected by a flash flood Saturday afternoon.

A video by Telemundo Arizona showed a reporter interviewing 22-year-old Carla Garnica whose brother Miguel, 27, is still missing.

They have not been named by authorities.

Four people were rescued by helicopter crews Saturday and were treated at a nearby hospital for hypothermia.

Owner of Ashley Madison offers to pay $14m compensation for data breach
Meaning that even if a person's name did appear in the data dump, they might not have been an Ashley Madison member, apparently. Tens of thousands of government and military email addresses showed up on the list of Ashley Madison users.

The "burn scar" was one of the reasons the weather service issued the flash-flood warning.

The thunderstorm hit about eight miles upstream of the swimming hole along Ellison Creek.

When they arrived at the scene, "they heard someone screaming for help and saw a man clinging to a rock", said Hornung, who added that the man was safely rescued. Obviously, the flash flood in the swimming hole took them by surprise and led to the tragedy. It happens every year.

Hornung said most members of the group were from the Phoenix area, which, along with the rest of southern Arizona, has experienced inordinately hot temperatures this summer.

"The entrance that we came from, that was just covered in water and we couldn't get out", she said.

Equities analysts anticipate that Western Gas Equity Partners, will post $1.58 earnings per share for the current fiscal year. Western Gas Partners, LP is a master limited partnership that acquires, owns, develops and operates midstream energy assets.

Alexander said there was no warning before the wall of water hit. The severe thunderstorm was located in a remote area that had been burned by a recent wildfire, Sattelmaier said. Visitors are reminded to be vigilant about the weather, he said. A flash food warning was issued but without a radio, the group would not have known.

"If it's an intense burn, it creates a glaze on the surface that just repels water", said Darren McCollum, a meteorologist.

Elsewhere in the U.S., officials are concerned flooding could impact the start of classes next month. When Nancy tried to find a way out, it got worse.

On Sunday, police said it was hard to know how many more people were missing since they do not know exactly how many were swimming in the hole when the floods occurred.
