I was 12 when this happened. I went to church in Milbank, so I had no concept of what Rapid was like. But I remember this vividly because the Masters boys were grandsons of my pastor. We heard there was a flood and then heard they had been driving their van and it had been washed into the creek, landing upside down and the boys couldn't get out. It was the most devastating thing I ever remember hearing when I was a kid.
