Double Tragedy Leaves 4 Children Orphaned

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - Children of a Southern California woman killed in an ice cave collapse this month have now lost their father as well.

Adrian Cardona of Redlands got into an argument Sunday night at a San Bernardino bar. He was asked to leave and was shot while standing near his car.

No arrests have been made.

He leaves two sons, 1 and 8 years old, and two daughters, ages 12 and 14.

A family friend tells the Press-Enterprise that Cardona had a former relationship with 34-year-old Annalisa Santana of Moreno Valley.

Santana died on July 6 while visiting unstable but popular ice caves northeast of Seattle.

Five others were hurt, including her eldest daughter and her brother, who's in critical condition.
