St. Paul has agreed to pay $20,000 to a fourth-grade student injured in a landslide that killed two of his classmates in a city park last year. The incident happened on a class fieldtrip to the city’s Lilydale Regional Park in May 2013. Ten-year-old Mohamed Fofana and 9-year-old Haysem Sani died in the landslide.
A motorist nearly fell into a gaping hole on a southern Minnesota road after the ground beneath it gave way. The incident was caught on dash camera, and uploaded Friday to YouTube by the Department of Transportation.
Thursday marks one year since a landslide in St. Paul’s Lilydale Park took the lives of two young students. Ten-year-old Mohamed Fofana and 9-year-old Haysem Sani were killed last May when a cliff fell on them during a class field trip.
The families of two children who were killed — and one child who was injured — after a landslide in Lilydale Regional Park last May could receive $1 million from the city of St. Paul, according to a settlement released Thursday.

St. Paul has hired a law school dean to lead an investigation into last month’s landslide that killed two students on a field trip to a park. Mayor Chris Coleman on Friday announced the hiring of Donald M. Lewis.
In the frantic first minutes of a St. Paul field trip tragedy, chaperones and emergency workers struggled to connect. Two children from an elementary school in St. Louis Park were killed in a landslide in Lilydale Regional Park in last month.
In the wake of the gravel slide incident that rocked Peter Hobart Elementary School, many Minnesotans are looking for a way to help the students and their families, including parents of classmates. One of those parents also happens to own a cheesecake shop, with plenty of room for donations.
One of the fourth-graders injured in Wednesday’s landslide in St. Paul is currently in fair condition, according to Regions Hospital and Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare.
Gov. Mark Dayton addressed the students, faculty, staff and community members at a St. Louis Park elementary school on Friday morning after two students there died while on a field trip in Lilydale. Mohamed Fofana and Haysem Sani were killed on Wednesday.
The body of the final missing child from Wednesday’s gravel slide accident has been recovered, authorities confirmed late Thursday morning. The victim was identified as 10-year-old Mohamed Fofana. The tragedy happened Wednesday afternoon at Lilydale Park.
St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman says an area of a park where two children were killed in a gravel slide is now indefinitely closed. Coleman also says no permits will be issued for fossil hunting in Lilydale Regional Park. The mayor calls it “a tragic day for St. Paul.”
Counselors were on hand at Peter Hobart Elementary School on Thursday for returning students, parents, and staff. And there’s a growing memorial that’s been set up outside the school as the community honors the two children who died in the Lilydale Park land slide — Mohamed Fofana, Haysem Sani — and also the two students injured in the accident.
Parents ran into a St. Louis Park elementary school “sick and heartbroken” Wednesday following a gravel slide that authorities say left one fourth-grader dead, two others injured and one missing.
