GREENVILLE, SC (WYFF) - The body of a second person who was swept away by flood waters over the weekend in the Upstate was recovered Monday afternoon, according to the coroner's office.

Greenville County Coroner Parks Evans said that at about 10:20 p.m. Saturday, a man and woman, later identified as Kimberly Michelle Jackson, 36, and Timothy Sullivan, 39, were in a vehicle that stalled in a flooded area. Evans said they were carried away by flood water when they got out of the vehicle.

Evans said it happened near Byrdland Drive at Airport Road.

Evans said crews found Jackson's body Sunday morning in a drainage pipe in a wooded area behind Haywood Crossing Plantation.

Sullivan's body was recovered by divers at about 2:40 p.m. Monday in pond between Haywood and Halton roads, the coroner said.

WYFF News 4's Nigel Robertson spoke to Sullivan's father, James, on Sunday.

"I listened to the news this morning that two people got swept down," James Sullivan said.  "And then my (other) son called me and told me it was him."

Greer, Taylors and Downtown Greenville were hit hardest Saturday evening.

The heavy rain caused road closures around the Upstate and prompted the American Red Cross to open two shelters as a precaution.  

The Red Cross later closed both shelters due to the lack of demand. Volunteers said only one person showed up for assistance.
