Authorities say the death toll from a military jet crash in a San Diego neighborhood stands at four after a toddler's body was found. Fire Department spokesman Maurice Luque (LOO'-kay) says the body of 15-month-old Grace Yoon was found Tuesday in the home where three other family members died.

The Rev. Kevin Lee of the Korean United Methodist Church says the other victims were Young Mi (mee) Yoon, who was in her mid-30s; her 2-month-old daughter, Rachel; and her mother, Suk Im (SUHK'-ehm) Kim.

Lee says the grandmother had recently arrived from South Korea to help care for the infant.

Both engines on the jet failed while it tried to land at a nearby Marine base Monday. The pilot ejected before the crash.
