Measurements of the lifetimes of the Λ+ c decaying into pK-π+ and of the D+ s decaying into φπ+ are presented. The data were accumulated in the Fermilab Wide-Band photoproduction experiment E687. The lifetimes of the Λ+ c and the D+ s are measured to be (0.20±0.03±3)× 10-12s and (0.50±0.06±0.03) × 10-12s respectively.
