In our newest episode of How We Got Here, we take a look back at the infamous collapse of the Church Hill tunnel in Richmond.
On Oct. 2, 1925, the train tunnel gave way during construction work, killing at least four men and entombing at least two people whose bodies remain there today. A steam locomotive and ten flatcars are still buried beneath Church Hill as well.
We talk to the son of two survivors of that fateful day, as he visits the now-sealed tunnel entrance for the very first time
In our previous bonus episode of How We Got Here, we sit down with Francis Gary Powers Junior, the son of the CIA spy who was shot down over the USSR on May 1, 1960.
After Episode 4 of Season 3 was released, Powers Jr. contacted us to tell us he lives in Central Virginia and would be willing to discuss his father's incredible story of espionage and imprisonment by the KGB.
Powers Jr. has written a book about his dad and travels the country to set the record straight about his dad’s famous crash in the Soviet Union.
