Quarry search suspended again

Posted By: Jason Mayoff · 2/1/2013 2:09:00 PM

The search for two missing quarry workers in l'Épiphanie has been suspended.

Officials say some of the earth has become unstable.

The search is expected to pick up again tomorrow morning, but they're now saying they'll be looking for the bodies of the victims.

On Tuesday, a landslide buried two workers while another man managed to escape by swinging his crane to keep it from falling over.

The search was suspended for much of the day yesterday, because of rain and wind.
