911 Transcripts Released from Fatal Lilydale Landslide

A 911 caller described the landslide that killed two fourth-graders in St. Paul as an “avalanche of sand.”

Transcripts from two calls were released Wednesday from the May 22 incident.

Fourth graders from St. Louis Park were fossil-hunting at Lilydale National Park when the hillside gave way. Mohamed Fofana and Haysem Sani were killed, and two other students were injured.

One of the callers said, “We heard a loud noise. I was at the top of the hill but I’m afraid that if something came down…the noise of the cliff…I can’t, I can’t even tell you what I’m thinking is happening.”

The city closed the fossil area of Lilydale Park until further notice.
