Mission fire crews confirmed to us that they had recovered the body of a man who drowned in a canal.
It happened on Bentson road north of Pecan Boulevard when a van crashed into the canal and reports indicate a man jumped into the canal to save a mother and her children. Emergency crews took three people to the hospital, but we're not being told their condition as of last night. The man who saved the mother and children survived and first responders believe the man who drowned in the canal is related to the mother and children.
