One Of Two Victims Recovered From Omaha Plant Explosion

OMAHA -- Just hours after Nebraska Task Force One left Lincoln for Omaha to help recover victims of the explosion and collapse of the International Nutrition plant, the team recovered one of the victim's.  Authorities say 53-year-old Keith Everett was the victim rescuers recovered late Monday afternoon.  The other victim's body remains inside the unstable plant.  Interim Omaha Fire Chief Bernie Kanger says cold, windy conditions prevented the team from finding a second known victim.  Those efforts will resume Tuesday.  It's not clear if more bodies are inside the twisted metal and collapsed concrete.  Fire Chief Kanger says the search is progressing slowly because the structure is unsafe...but he doesn't believe anyone inside is still alive.  There were 38 people working inside International Nutrition when it explosed Monday morning. Two have been confirmed dead, ten hospitalized and seven hurt, but refusing treatment.
