THUMBS DOWN! TRAGEDY STRIKES. Two Las Vegas city employees were killed Wednesday when a deep trench they were working in collapsed. After the ditch collapsed on them, a frantic effort ensued to get them out, but Frank Romero and Gene Hern died at the scene. And to add to the tragedy, fears that the ditch remained unstable kept crews from pulling out the bodies until hours after the accident.
Our heart goes out to the families of these two victims. Two vibrant lives were taken away far too soon.
