Concordia student returns home after evacuating northern Israelby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — As top diplomats from around the world pressure Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice to support an immediate cease-fire in the middle east, evacuation efforts in Lebanon and Israel continue.
One evacuee who's already made it out is a student from Concordia University in St. Paul who was in northern Israel. Andrea Chandler has returned to her home in Denver Colorado. She was part of a group of students involved in an archeological excavation led by a Concordia theology professor.
After just two weeks of a six-week dig, the students were sent home when bombs exploded across the Sea of Galilee, just seven miles away from where the students were staying. Cathy Wurzer talked with Andrea who says memories of the day the bombing started are still vivid.
