Consider the following sentence:
Local Man Loses Pants, Life; Beaver Rescue Falls Short
I've seen this named before where a sentence has two endings but I've been unable to find it on any grammar or linguistics websites.

A semicolon alone can be used to coordinate two main clauses; this signals a closer relationship between two independent clauses. Some refer to this stylistic device as the Semicolon Alone Method.
Semicolon (;) ... Punctuation sometimes regarded as a weak period or strong comma and used in ways similar to periods and commas. A semicolon can mark the end of a clause and indicate that a clause following is closely related to the previous clause. ... Separates (but also links) independent clauses in place of a coordinating conjunction or ellipsis, e.g. The package was due last week; it arrived today.
The rhetorical figure of leaving out conjunctions (in this case 'and' before 'Life') is called asyndeton, or asyndetic listing.
