70-year-old who kidnapped bus full of children,

A 70-year-old man accused of kidnapping a bus full of children and burying them alive for ransom in 1976 has been approved for parole.
According to CNN, Frederick Newhall Woods was one of three men who kidnapped 26 children and their bus driver in Northern California, drove them more than 100 miles away, placed them in a moving truck, and buried them alive in a quarry owned by his father.
The kidnappers then demanded $5 million in ransom.
After spending 16 hours underground, the driver and the children were able to dig their way out and escape.
