St. Paul reaches settlement in fatal landslide

March 6, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The city of St. Paul has agreed to pay $1 million to the families of two children who were killed and one who was injured in a landslide during a school field trip last May.

The City Council is scheduled to approve the settlement on Wednesday.

The families of the children who died — 9-year-old Haysem Sani and 10-year-old Mohamed Fofana — would each get $400,000, while $200,000 would go to the family of 10-year-old Devin Meldahl, who suffered shull, leg and rib fractures.

The children were part of a group from Peter Hobart Elementary School in St. Louis Park that went fossil-hunting at Lilydale Regional Park.

Two city-funded investigations last year found that city employees knew of past landslides in the park but could not have predicted the tragedy.
