School Bombing Survivors Participate in Utah Film
More than a dozen people who survived a 1986 Wyoming school bombing as children are re-enacting the incident at a Utah school as part of a local filmmaker’s project depicting the day.
Survivors of the Cokeville school bombing say they’re participating in the film not to mark a tragedy, but to mark a miracle: That no one but the attackers died that day.
The bombing occurred 28 years ago when a man and his wife held 154 children, teachers and visitors hostage in the small town’s elementary school.
A homemade bomb accidentally detonated, and the man killed his wife and then himself.
Lori Conger, a 39-year-old who now lives in Kaysville, told The Salt Lake Tribune that participating in the film as an extra helps her remember how lucky they were to survive.
