A rescue mission for two children trapped underground turned into a recovery mission late Sunday, according to officials with Lincoln County Emergency Management.

Poor little buggers
Kids were 6 and 7 years old
Apparently the building collapsed trapping these two poor souls underground. Rescue services are desperately trying to dig the children out.
They have now been underground for over 2 hours so the hopes of getting them out alive is decreasing as the minutes tick by.

In the video you can see the workers working at full speed trying to dig the soil out.

It's always sad to hear about something like this because adults are usually a little more mentally able to handle this situation a little more calmly. Understanding the sounds of equipment digging them out, air supply, rescue procedures, etc.

Children however, are that much more frail (sometimes) and confused as to what may be underway up top and what can be done to save them. The fear of not knowing or understanding is much worse IMO.

All they want is their mom and dad and they are not there.


C'mon kids...hang in there!

Peace

So, they'll save the kids that are trapped beneath a house, but not a guy who got trapped in a sinkhole. Guess adult lives are less valuable.

A 6-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy were trapped about 20 feet below a house that was under construction after part of the building collapsed,

The developer can not be held accountable for a natural phenomenon nor for trespassers hurt on the property. Lets get the full story before hoping people are held to the fire.

I didn't know. Sorry, to hear about the kids. From the way it sounded, it sounded like they were still alive.

Truly sad accident. More of the story is coming out now. The owner was digging some sort of "bunker". And I'm sure the media will take this as an opportunity to further vilify the prepper movement.

www.cbsnews.com...


Rescuers on Monday recovered the bodies of two young cousins buried when a wall of dirt fell on them while they were playing in a hole at a home construction site in North Carolina.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Carpenter later said deputies had not yet interviewed the family living in the home but planned to follow up on neighbors' reports that the man was excavating the two-story pit to build some sort of a protective bunker.

Horrible tragedy. This could be a Tornado shelter it doesn't have to be a bunker. Tornado shelters are quite common where I live so I cringe every time I see people call stuff like this a bunker. Seeing how this was the boys father and the children were not trespassing this could very well result in charges. I expected that the children were trespassing before reading the article right above my post here.

Code violations would be the least of my concern as a deputy. You have two dead children here. I would think criminal charges would be more appropriate. I am not sure how the law works in NC guess we will have to see.
