Cave-in kills Tucson man digging for rocks, minerals; friend walks miles for help
BENSON, AZ, October 10th, 2013(THE ASSOCIATED PRESS)
A 56-year-old Tucson man was killed when the side of a wash caved in while he and a friend were looking for rocks and minerals.
Responders found William T. Lawrence buried Wednesday under several feet of rocks, dirt and debris in a remote area near Benson, the Cochise County Sheriff's Office said.
The friend, Barbara Muntyan of Tucson, walked miles to reach help and told authorities Lawrence had been digging in the wall of the wash when she heard a noise, according to the sheriff's office.
Lawrence had the only cellphone and set of keys for their vehicle, so Muntyan had to hike five miles from the site to flag down a passing motorist for help, said sheriff's Sgt. John Filippelli.
