Pennsylvania Mining Disaster

Posted by danlanders

Pennsylvania - Quecreek Mining Incident


  A sleepy western Pennsylvania mining town suddenly found itself shoved into the national spotlight when one of it's mines suddenly collapsed, trapping 9 miners deep in the Earth. Rescue workers labored around the clock digging a hole parallel to the mine shaft to rescue the trapped men.
  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.
