Searchers at fatal NC plant blast hampered by roof; recover one body
GARNER, NC – Officials say the body of one person killed in an explosion at a Slim Jim factory in North Carolina has been recovered. Crews are still trying to reach another body and one employee is unaccounted for.
The search and rescue chief says that crews will enter the ConAgra Food plant in Garner through its roof and work slowly because the structure is unstable.
The body was recovered last night before heavy rains and thunderstorms forced workers to stop. The roof on the massive building filled with water and was so heavy it might collapse.
But officials say enough water has been drained off to allow crews to enter the building.
