SOUTH OF MCALLEN — Emergency crews recovered the body of Andres Frias, 18, from an underground canal early Sunday morning.
Over 150 people assisted with the recovery. Crews drained the 2,000 foot canal, which gave fire fighters enough room to navigate the 15 foot by 9 foot pipe.
Frias jumped into the canal on August 2nd after fishing with family members.
Government officials are still calculating how much the recovery effort cost.
