ST. PAUL (AP) - Authorities say one child is dead, one is still missing and two others were hurt after a gravel slide in a St. Paul park.

It happened at Cherokee Park near the Mississippi River where the children were taking part in a school field trip. Officials say children were exploring the park when the slide happened about 1:15 p.m. Wednesday.

The children were 4th graders from the Peter Hobart Elementary School. The exact conditions of the two rescued children are not known.
