With all the moisture we have had, Im sure the soil wasnt strong enough to support its own weight. I thought they did a soil moisture density test before digging? Im sorry for there familys, condolences

OSHA has strict guideline for digging trenches and ditches. The "Indian Land" or "Federal Trust Land" should follow the same guidelines as every OSHA regulated business in this country. These guidelines are set to save lives. If the regulated shoring was done (2ft for every 1ft you dig) this would hot have happenned. I think the families of these two individuals should sue the heck out of the Kickapoo Tribe. They should have the profits from some of their casinos for the rest of their lives and their kids lives and so on... God Bless the Families of these two hard working men.

Actually it would be the business that they worked for that was digging the hole, as they have to be bonded and insured to work on private or Federal land , the Indians cant be held responcible for a company hired to do the work, unless they were not licensed or bonded
