Technical Rescue: Bodies of Children Recovered in NC Construction Collapse

04/08/2013
On Monday, authorities recovered the bodies of two children who were buried alive in a collapse at a construction site in Lincoln County, North Carolina. The children, who were aged six and seven, were playing in a deep pit behind a relative's home in the rural area when a wall of the pit collapsed, CNN reports (http://bit.ly/10MZi6m). Rescuers spent hours trying to save them. The wall that collapsed was to be part of a basement of a structure that was under construction. Seventy five rescue workers responded to the incident. By Sunday night, they were using heavy equipment to stabilize the pit so as not to cause it to cave in. Read additional details about this incident at http://bit.ly/...
