Emergency workers on scene where a 13-hour search for two young cousins buried in the collapse of a construction site in eastern Lincoln County ended around daybreak Monday, April 08, 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. It is off Old Plank Road, a few miles west of N.C. 16 and about 20 miles northwest of Charlotte.
