Children Trapped
Emergency response vehicles are parked near the scene where a 13-hour search for two young cousins buried in the collapse of a construction site in eastern Lincoln County, N.C., ended around daybreak Monday, April 8, 2013, with the discovery of the bodies. Lincoln County Emergency Management spokesman Dion Burleson said the body of a 6-year-old girl was found about 6 a.m., and the body of a 7-year-old boy was discovered about an hour later. Authorities say the children were found under about 24 feet of dirt in an excavated site on Cedarbrook Drive, a gravel road near the Lucia community. (AP Photo/The Charlotte Observer, Davie Hinshaw)
