Pennsylvania - Quecreek Mining Incident
Between the hours of 1 am and 3 am, on a July Sunday morning, the miners were finally rescued from their entrapment. They were hoisted to safety in an 8 1/2 foot capsule, up the 240 foot hole which had been bored right next to the collapsed mine shaft. All miners were rescued. For a more complete story click here.
Let this stand as a tribute to the bravery of the miners, their families and the rescuers involved.
