Emergency personnel recovered the body of 5-year-old Maci Jade Chavez this morning.

Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson pronounced her dead at 11:20 a.m. The cause of death has been listed as drowning.

Maci and her family were in a canoe that was swept into Milan’s Steel Dam at about 6:15 p.m. Monday. A memorial service for Maci was held at the dam on Thursday.

“We are grateful we had the opportunity to bring her back and hopefully find closure for her family,” Gustafson said.
