UPDATE: Body Of Child Found In Deadly St. Paul Landslide
ST. PAUL (AP) – Authorities in St. Paul say they’ve recovered the body of a child missing since a rockslide killed a classmate and left two others injured at a park along the Mississippi River.
Assistant Fire Chief Jim Smith tells reporters that crews found the body of the missing child late Thursday morning.
Rain-saturated soil gave way Wednesday afternoon as the boy and other fourth-graders from a St. Louis Park elementary school walked along a path in Lilydale Regional Park. They were on a fossil-hunting field trip.
Another child died in the landslide. Authorities say one child remains in serious condition in a hospital.
