Authorities hope to continue their search this morning for the second victim of yesterday's explosion and building collapse at Omaha's International Nutrition plant. The search for that victim had to be suspended last night because of harsh weather conditions.

Officials were able to recover the body of 53 year old Keith Everett from the rubble around 5 p.m. yesterday.

38 workers were inside the building when it collapsed. 17 people were sent to nearby hospitals, 4 are currently in critical condition.

Omaha's interim fire chief says five people had to be physically removed from the damaged structure.

The International Nutrition Plant makes animal supplements and feed products for feed manufacturers.
