2 men have been charged for vandalizing a memorial in honor of the victims of United Airlines Flight 232 in Sioux City, Iowa.
‘The Sioux City Journal says Scott Coleson, of Lehigh, and Felipe Sebastian, of South Sioux City, Neb., are suspected of pushing over a boulder at the memorial at a park early Wednesday. Both are charged with criminal mischief.
The city says it will cost $3,000 to replace the cracked boulder. It’s one of eight leading up to a statue commemorating the accident.’
United Airlines Flight 232 crashed at Sioux City Airport on July 19th, 1989 due to a failure in the tail section of the aircraft. 111 people died in the crash but 185 survived due to the heroic efforts of the pilots who limped the stricken DC-10 to Sioux City.
