Boy Digging In Soil Banks Dies After Cave-In

A 12-year-old boy has died in a weekend accident near the central Nebraska town of Dunning.

Authorities say Cole Roseberry of Kearney was playing in a soil bank with his brother on Saturday around 8:20 p.m., when the soil collapsed on top of him. He was taken to a local hospital, but died of suffocation.

Authorities say the boys had been staying with their grandparents near Broken Bow. Cole's father, Dave Roseberry, is the fair manager in Kearney.

Funeral services will be held Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at First United Methodist Church in Kearney. The burial will be at the Kearney Cemetery.
