VIDEO: US floods: At least 16 dead in Utah

At least 16 people have died in flash floods in a rural community in the mid-western United States.

One person is still missing in the town of Hildale on the Utah border with Arizona. 12 of those who died were from two families whose vehicles were swept away.

Three children survived. Eyewitnesses described the desperate rescue attempt. “The emergency services pierced the airbags and pulled them out and inside it was a jumble of arms and legs," one eyewitness said.

The rescue workers said they could not find a pulse.
