A fifth victim has been recovered from receding flood water following a deluge of rain late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.

Comal County officials on Sunday found the body of 26-year-old Samuel Gene Rosson of Canyon Lake who was swept away in the Guadalupe River.

According to an earlier report from the San Antonio News-Express, officials were called to the 500 block of Riverside Path at 1:30 a.m. Thursday where a river outfitter employee slipped and fell into the swollen river while trying to retrieve some equipment. Rescue crews searched the area around the riverbank Thursday and Friday, but conditions were too dangerous to send in divers.

Four people died in Austin-area flooding from the same storm system.
