WITH TODAYS TECHOLIGY I CANNOT FIGURE OUT WHY A HOLE BIG ENOUGH FOR A HUMAN CAN'T GO DOWN IN A CAPSULE OR SOME KIND OF HUMAN ELEVATOR WITH PROPER AIRTANKS AN SEEK OUT THE FORMER MINERS THAT ARE DOWN UNDERNEATH. AN FIND HOPFULLY AN BRING THEM OUT? AS NEWS STATED ABOUT THE ROBIC CAMERA AN THINGS. THATS GREAT! BUT IT DOESNT BRING HOME THE DADS AN FATHERS AN BROTHERS. SADLY INCASED DOWN UNDER. AS PICTURES HAVE SHOWN, PARTS OF THE CAVERANS ARE WIRE MESHED CEILINGS AN WALLS TO SO CALL PROTECT THE WORKERS. IM SURE THERE YET. SUPPORTING BENEATH. LIKE THE TOWERS YEARS AGO, EVERY AGENCY WAS THERE, AN MINNIAPOLIS MINN, EVERY CONCIVEABLE MILITARY AGENCY IS AN WAS THERE. I HVNT SEEN ANY OUTPOURING OF THEM AT THE COAL MINE. MABE THEY ARE? BUT I DONT SEE THEN DOING THE EXPERT MILITARY SYSTEMS GOING IN. SEEMS TO BETHERE NEEDS TO BE A VERY BIG FEDERAL INVESTICATION ON THE MINES AN THE OWNERS. AND SUMONE SHOULD BE TOTALLY RESPONCABLE FOR THERE DEATHS.

It's so very very sad that this has happened they said that the same company owns another mine somewhere else I forget where but they have been cited to fix a bunch of safety things in there mines. I caan't belive thaaat they couldn't get those poor men out of there and then they finally tried and more can't buried and now I haven't heard anything for over a week now so I don't know whats going on. God Bless those poor men and there families my heart goes out to them all. Love and Hugs Linda J and God Bless Our Troops

Do not give up on these miners. We should keep trying. If they are alive it would be terrible to give up and they would not hear anyone trying this could be devestating to their hope. The families deserve the effort to keep on trying to find them. We sure do waste money many other ways. If you are going to mine it is part of the company's responsibility to search and find the miners. God be with them and their loved ones.
