(NEWSER) – A construction site accident in rural North Carolina did indeed claim the lives of two children, a 13-hour search involving more than 100 people has revealed. A wall of dirt fell on cousins who'd been playing in a hole at the excavated site, reports the Charlotte Observer. The body of the 6-year-old girl was uncovered around 6am, and that of the 7-year-old boy about an hour later. The kids were trapped under roughly 24 feet of dirt.
