COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) -- Authorities have recovered the body of 9-year-old Justin Brown, who apparently drowned after an all-terrain vehicle overturned in Luxapalila Creek Saturday.

According to law enforcement, two boys, their father and three other people were crossing a spillway when a strong current flipped the vehicle.

The current swept both boys into a creek that is up to 12 feet deep.

Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant says Justin Brown's body was discovered around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. 

The body of 6-year-old Jacob Brown was discovered Sunday afternoon about a mile south of where the accident occurred.
