BUENOS AIRES – The body of Manuel Storani, the 14-year-old son of former Interior Minister Federico Storani, was found over the weekend following a boating accident, Argentine Naval Prefecture officials told EFE on Monday.
The teenager was one of three people killed when two boats collided early Friday in a canal that runs into the Lujan River in Buenos Aires province.
The body, which has been identified by relatives, was recovered on Sunday night in San Isidro about 400 meters (some 1,300 feet) from the accident scene in an area where many boats operate.
The accident occurred around 12:15 a.m. on Friday, killing the boy’s mother and a companion.
Officials used helicopters, divers, boats, coast guard vessels and navy boats to search for the teenager, the Security Ministry said over the weekend.
The man handling one of the boats is listed in serious condition at a hospital and has been charged with manslaughter by the prosecutor investigating the accident.
