[The Jack Rice Show] Jack Interviews the Parents of a Boy Killed in St Paul Mudslide about Building a School in Africa
Lancine and Madosu Fofana received the phone call that is every parent's nightmare. There was an accident and their son Mohamed was missing.
On May 22, 2013, two fourth grade classes from Peter Hobert Elementary School in St. Louis Park took a field trip to Lilydale Regional Park in St. Paul. As the children searched for fossils, the earth gave way burying the group in four feet of mud, sand and rocks on a Mississippi River bluff. Two were killed, including Mohamed Fofana.
While many people would have just given up and quit, the Fofanas were determined to do something in his memory. They decided to fulfill their son's life wish to build a school for poor kids in West Africa.
