The remains1 of the first American lost in operation "Desert Storm" have finally been found. The Pentagon today confirmed the remains  recently found in Iraq are those of Michael Scott Speicher, the navy pilot shot down on the first night of the war in 1991. Our Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr has been working on this story.


At this point, what the Pentagon is telling us is they were acting2 on information provided by an Iraqi citizen in early July. And that led the US marines who were stationed in Al Anbar province out in western Iraq to go to a location in the desert which was believed to be a crash site of Captain Speicher's jet. The Iraqi citizen said that he knew of two Iraqi citizens who recalled an American jet impacting the desert and the remains of the pilot being buried there by the Bedouins.


All right,2 people are still in critical condition after a stage collapsed3 at a country music festival in western Canada. 1 person was killed and at least 15 more were hurt yesterday after an intense thunderstorm blew down an outdoor stage at the Big Valley Jamboree. Actor Kevin Costner was just about to take to the stage when his band "Modern West" was about to perform. He was unhurt but 2 of the band's crew members did suffer some minor4 injuries. A woman in the audience says she thought she was going to just die.


We were on the post of that scene which means we get access to the show on stage. The next thing I know, we were running off and for 20 feet off on the stage and big wind gusts5 and getting nowhere and literally6 the whole deck crashes just like a midway ride of capital X. Next thing I know there is like concrete and there is like something on top of my back. I cannot see a thing, all I'm doing is yelling for my sister there, children on the deck with us. It was awful. I thought my life was literally ending because it was completely dark and black. And I can honestly say if I wasn't just as thin as I was I would never have gotten out, because there was a tiny hole that I crawled through and it was probably, I don't know, if it's 50 feet down that I had to jump. It was a serious part of my life.


Very scary moments there. About 15,000 people were actually attending the festival in Cambrose, Alberta. That's about 60 miles southeast of Edmonton.
