Allen Thomas and James Jackson were among a group of workers who were working in a trench at a construction site at Summit Pointe apartments when it gave away, trapping six people. Four managed to escape. A rescue team attempted to save Thomas and Jackson but they were killed by asphyxiation. Their death was ruled accidental.
