LAYTON, Utah -- 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 filmmaker's project depicting the day. Survivors of the Cokeville, Wyoming, 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 only elementary school. A homemade bomb accidentally detonated and the man killed his wife and then himself.
