Authorities in Alabama say a second body has been recovered in the search for four children allegedly thrown from a coastal bridge by their father.

The body was found near where a duck hunter found the body of an infant about five miles west of the bridge in a marshy area yesterday.

The search for the children began last week near the mouth of Mobile Bay after prosecutors said the father confessed.

Authorities say searchers using sonar technology saw images late last week that they believed were three bodies, but the currents were so strong the divers were unable to get to the location.
