Frank and Rita Romero moved to Las Vegas from California four years ago looking for a fresh start.
“After our son passed away, we just decided to have a new life and start over,” Rita Romero said.
On Wednesday their fresh start turned tragic. Frank Romero, 49, and another city worker were inside an 8- or 9-foot trench when it collapsed, killing both of them.
“It’s a huge loss, but hopefully my son was there to greet him,” Rita Romero said.
