    The bodies of two children trapped under a collapsed construction site in North Carolina were found early Monday morning. According to the local news report, a neighbor, in the process of building a house, was digging out the basement when a wall of dirt caved in on the kids Sunday evening. Despite believing that the children were likely already dead, emergency crews worked through the night to recover their bodies. The crews discovered the bodies of the two cousins, a 7-year-old boy and 6-year-old girl, about 15 feet into a 25-foot hole.
