HUNTINGTON, Utah (AP) — Seismic activity has "totally shut down" efforts to reach six miners trapped below ground and has wiped out all the work achieved in the past day, a mine executive said yesterday.
HUNTINGTON, Utah (AP) — Hundreds of rescuers broke through walls of rock in a desperate race to reach six coal miners trapped 1,500 feet below ground by a cave-in so powerful that authorities initially thought it was an earthquake.
HUNTINGTON, Utah (AP) — Efforts to reach six coal miners trapped more than 1,500 feet underground will take at least three days, and rescuers weren't even sure the men had survived the cave-in, one of the mine's owners said today.
The seismic activity and other factors "have totally shut down our rescue efforts underground," Mr. Murray said.
Meanwhile, unstable conditions below ground have thwarted rescuers' efforts to break through to the miners, who have been trapped 1,500 feet below the surface for nearly two days, he said.
