At least nine people have been killed in flash floods after monsoon-like rains swept through a swimming hole in the US state of Arizona, officials say.

Among those who died were children, including a two-year-old. One man is still missing, US media report.

More than 100 people were bathing in the area when the floodwaters hit with almost no warning.

The flash flood occurred at Cold Springs, near Payson, on Saturday, sweeping people down East Verde River.
