(WDAY TV) -- Crews have recovered the body of a teenager who drowned in Sioux Falls after trying to save her 6-year-old brother from an icy river.

The Sioux Falls Fire Chief says 16-year-old Madison Wallace's body was found this afternoon. This is what it looked like last night. Wallace jumped into the Big Sioux River at Falls Park last night after her 6-year-old brother either fell into the frothing water or became obscured by the gathering foam.

The boy was able to get out and was not injured. The body of a Sioux Falls man who jumped in to help has not been recovered.
