Costa Rica finds body of US student missing at sea

Costa Rica finds body of US student missing at sea

Costa Rican rescuers say they have found the body of a third U.S. high school student who was swept out to sea by a strong undertow in the Pacific Ocean.
Red Cross assistant director Jesus Escalona says a coast guard patrol recovered the body of Kai Lamar in waters off Bejuco beach. The bodies of Caity Jones and James Smith were found earlier this week.
Patriot Preparatory Academy in Columbus says the current pulled them away from shore Wednesday afternoon. They were among eight juniors and seniors taking a service trip not sponsored by the school.
Escalona says Lamar's body was found Friday in roughly the same area where Smith's body was recovered a day earlier.
