Car Overturned In Ashland Campground

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- A 7-year-old girl has been killed after flash flooding from heavy rains swept her family's car 100 yards downstream at a campground in New Hampshire's lakes region.


Rescuers said four people were in the car that overturned at the Ames Brook campground in Ashland on Thursday evening.

The girl's father escaped and screamed for help, and her mother and another child were rescued. The girl's body was found when the water receded.

Witness Theresa Simione told WMUR-TV that the brook was a raging river.

The rescue team also saved a woman and an 8-year-old boy clinging to a tree in the flooded campground.

Parts of Ashland were shut down earlier because of the flooding from Ames Brook. Roads in areas such as Meredith, New Hampton and Laconia also took on water.
