New London survivors return for memorial

An observance to one of the worst disasters in Texas history was held this weekend in East Texas.

It was March 18, 1937 that a gas line leak caused an explosion that destroyed the New London school, killing nearly 300 students and teachers. This weekend, former students and families came back for a reunion and memorial in remembrance of those lost.

The New London explosion remains the worst school disaster in Texas history.
