Anaheim, CA Cave Collapse, Feb 1957

THREE BOYS KILLED WHEN CAVE COLLAPSES.

Anaheim, Calif., Feb. 23 (AP) -- Three boys were killed yesterday when a cave they were digging in an embankment collapsed.
Buried under tons of earth were LARRY JOSEPH SCHARER, 12; STEPHEN WAYNE JONES, 10, and WILLIAM DAVID BARRON, 7.
BILLY HUSHMAN, 10, who was digging with the others in a bank of dirt at a freeway project, went home about 1 p.m. to get a shovel.
When he returned, he found the cave obliterated.
