Fire officials have recovered the bodies of two Colorado Springs boys who died in Tuesday's flash flooding.
Fourteen year old Tucker Graef, seen here, and 13 year old Kevin Carman were last seen Tuesday just before the rain started. The boys never made it home.
Emergency crews spent most of Wednesday afternoon searching for the pair. The mother of one of the boys found her son's body in a drainage culvert near Austin Bluffs and Woodmen. The body of the other boy traveled about 6 miles down stream, and was found trapped in Monument Creek.
The El Paso County Coroner's office says both of the boys drowned. Their deaths have been ruled accidental.
Reg Francklyn, President of El Paso County Search and Rescue, urges parents to have serious talks with their kids about the dangers of water. He says parents should tell kids to stay away from waterways, especially when it's raining.
