(St. Paul Park, MN) -- Dive teams have recovered the body of a 14-year-old boy who drowned in the Mississippi River near St. Paul Park on Sunday. Dylan Thorp's body was found early Monday morning, and family and friends held a candlelight vigil at Lions Levee Park for him last night. Hours after Thorp was found, 21-year-old Tou Hu Vang of Coon Rapids drowned in the St. Croix River when he went in to the water to save his eleven-year-old nephew who had slipped on a rock. The boy was rescued by another man as the current carried Vang away.
