LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County Fire Department and Metro police officers found a body Friday in a flood channel near Giles and Mandalay Bay Road while clearing away debris.
Public Works had brought in heavy equipment to remove debris from the channel, and firefighters went through the debris piles by hand, which is when the body was found.
The find marked the second body found in the wash on Friday after monsoonal floods Thursday night.
Authorities said that the body of a man was removed and transferred to the coroner’s office around 2 p.m. Friday.
The first victim was found Thursday night after Metro and Clark County Fire were called about a person in the flood channel. That person was taken to UMC where they were pronounced deceased.
