I think it's awful

that for three hours the families of these miners were under the mistaken belief that twelve of the thirteen had survived, due to miscommunication, when in actuality one of the thirteen managed to survive the toxic fumes inside the mine. How awful for them. It was chilling today that the jubilation was frozen in print when those of us who had heard the news coverage or read the updates on the Internet learnt the awful truth. I cannot imagine how distraught and angry these families must be, and they have my deepest sympathy.
