Eleven Workmen Entombed and
One Killed at I.os Angeles
Shortly after 1 o'clock Saturday morning the west end of what is known as the Third street tunnel, Los Angeles, Cal., caved In and entombed eleven laborers and brick layers, and fatally injured W. T. Lambie, an inspector in the employment of the street department.
The men were engaged in excavating 175 feet from the mouth of the tunnel when the entrance, which had been timbered up for a distance of twenty-eight feet, was suddenly choked up by tons of earth and broken timbers.
It is not thought any of the entombed men were killed, and barring accidents they will be liberated in the course of twelve or fifteen hours.
