Body recovered after landslide hits Canadian town
(CBS/AP) JOHNSONS LANDING, British Columbia - Police say emergency crews have found the body of one of four people missing after a massive landslide crushed several homes in a tiny western Canada town.
British Columbia's chief coroner Lisa Lapointe said Sunday that an adult male body was recovered near a home swept away by the landslide in the small hamlet of Johnsons Landing in B.C.
She says crews will try to recover the three remaining bodies.
At least three homes were crushed after a wall of rock, mud and trees cascaded down the side of a mountain earlier this week.
Two sisters, aged 17 and 22, and their father have been missing since the slide struck last Thursday.
A female German tourist was also believed to have been caught in the debris.
Lynn Migdal said Friday she hopes her two daughters and ex-husband are still alive after their home in British Columbia was engulfed by debris.
Midgal, speaking from Florida, said one of her daughters spoke to a friend just before the landslide hit and said they were in the home.
On Friday a news crew covering Thursday's landslide witnessed and recorded another landslide in the same area. (To watch the video click on the player above.)
