Body of missing child found at park landslide site

ST. PAUL —

Authorities in St. Paul say they've recovered the body of a child missing since a rockslide killed a classmate and left two others injured at a park along the Mississippi River.

Assistant Fire Chief Jim Smith tells reporters that crews found the body of the missing child late Thursday morning.

Rain-saturated soil gave way Wednesday afternoon as the boy and other fourth-graders from a St. Louis Park elementary school walked along a path in Lilydale Regional Park. They were on a fossil-hunting field trip.

Another child died in the landslide. Authorities say one child remains in serious condition in a hospital.
