ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Authorities in St. Paul, Minnesota, have confirmed that two construction workers died when a trench collapsed as they were working.

The St. Paul Fire Department said on Twitter Saturday that the bodies had been recovered, a day after the collapse. Names of the victims have not been released.

The accident happened about 2:45 p.m. Friday in St. Paul’s Highland Park neighborhood. Deputy Fire Chief Roy Mokosso says another worker in the area called 911 and attempted a brief rescue, but authorities believe the workers died within minutes of the collapse.
