ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — More information is being released about a rockslide that killed two students who were on a field trip at a St. Paul park.

St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman is holding a news conference Thursday to discuss findings of two independent investigations into the May incident at Lilydale Regional Park.

Hamline University School of Law Dean Don Lewis has been overseeing an independent review of the rockslide. A geo-technical engineering firm was also investigating the rockslide's cause.

In May, a bluff at the riverside park collapsed, killing 10-year-old Mohamed Fofana and 9-year-old Haysem Sani. Two other students from Peter Hobart Elementary School in St. Louis Park were injured.

Lilydale Regional Park runs along the Mississippi River. It's a popular destination for fossil hunting.
