Default Miners trapped in West Virginia!

I just saw on the news there are 13 miners trapped 2 miles deep in a mine in WV. Let's all pray they are saved as the miners in Pa. were saved a couple of years ago.

Regards,
Thomas

This is very sad news. They just did an air quality check and it doesn't look good. Sad news for so early in the New Year.

Not good news. The hole they dug into the shaft where they are supposed to be indicated carbon monoxide levels too high to sustain life. Hopefully, they have moved to another area of the mine. Keep praying.

Doesn't sound hopeful, but we all remember Pennsylvania in 2002 and that didn't look hopeful either. After 77 hours they all made it. Prayers to all the families who wait hopefully.
