Four bodies recovered in Utah cave

PROVO, Utah : Searchers recovered the bodies of two women and two men who had tried to swim underwater through a narrow submerged passageway in a cave in an effort to reach another chamber, officials said Thursday.
Police were working to identify the people, ages 18 to 28, and notify relatives, said Karen Mayne, a spokeswoman for the Provo Police Department.
The body of at least one of the victims -- a young woman -- was found underwater in the narrow passage, Mayne said.
Details on the locations of the other three were not immediately made available.
A fifth member of the group had called authorities about an hour after his friends entered the water to attempt to swim to the other chamber, authorities said.
