2 mine workers killed in Missouri accident

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Two workers who fell to their deaths in a southeast Missouri mine have been identified by their employer.

Mississippi Lime Company president Bill Ayers issued a statement saying 53-year-old John Hahl of Farmington and 29-year-old Chris Rawson of Hillsboro died in the accident around 8:30 a.m. Friday.

Hahl and Rawson were working in a lime mine near the town of Ste. Genevieve, about 60 miles south of St. Louis.

Ste. Genevieve County Coroner Leo Basler says the men were in a basket extended from a truck removing loose rock from either the wall or the ceiling of the mine.

Basler says loose rock hit the basket and detached it. The men fell to their death.

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - The Illinois State Police are in the midst of a statewide safety crackdown.

 

The push is in memory of State Trooper James Sauter. The southern Illinois resident was killed one year ago today in an accident near Chicago. He was in his squad car, when a semi truck rear-ended his car. “Operation Sauter” will target commercial vehicles cracking down on speeding, drunk or distracted drivers, and seatbelt violations.

There were seven people in the house including a 4 year old, two teenagers,  three adults and the 11-year-old victim. One of the teens had been shot in a prior incident and police are hoping he can provide some useful information about last night's attack.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Historians know where Solomon Northup was born, where he lived and where he worked. They know whom he married and how many children he had. They know he played the fiddle and spent 12 years enslaved in the South before being freed.

What historians don't know about the author of "12 Years A Slave" is when and how he died and where he's buried. It's a lingering mystery in the final chapter of the life of the 19th-century free-born African-American whose compelling account of enforced slavery was made into the Oscar-winning film of the same title.

The accolades have sparked new interest in Northup's story, which was little known until recent years even in the upstate New York communities where he spent most of his life.
