More Problems At The Utah Mine

I'm afraid the mine tragedy is getting worse:

HUNTINGTON, Utah - A disastrous cave-in Thursday night killed a rescue worker and injured at least eight others who were trying to tunnel through rubble to reach six trapped miners, authorities said.

"All rescue workers have been evacuated from the mine. Nine rescue workers were injured in the accident. One of those suffered fatal injuries," said Dirk Fillpot, a spokesman for the federal Mine Safety and Health Administration.

I am about to make a lot of you folks angry, but this has to be said: the six trapped miners are probably dead. Is it really worth sacrificing more lives for people who have been buried for 11 days?

It is a very sad and tragic situation. Now two of the rescuers are dead. Some of them are related to those in trapped in the mine. I hope families aren't facing double tragedy.

I'm getting a little tired of the tone the press has taken with anyone willing to do a press conference. Vultures.

I am convinced that there was seismic activity in the mine to cause this all to occur - and that seismic activity is also part of the Peru earthquake.

My prayers go out to those families.

RT - Agreed. It's a no-win situation for the company. If they call off the search, they will be second-guessed about whether the miners could have been saved or not. On the other hand, the rescuers are dying now. It's a terrible situation.

Judy - I was just discussing that earlier this afternoon. There MUST be a correlation between the two. Awful.
