So sad

ABC News: Miners' Notes Reveal Their Final Moments

One of my coworkers had a good point; mining accidents happen all the time and don't have the coverage that this one did. I don't know if it just happened on a day where there wasn't a lot to crowd it to a mere crawl on the screen or what. But they should get that kind of coverage. It has all the heartbreak and drama of a Lifetime movie, but sadly it's real-life and not fiction. I just hope the lone survivor manages to pull through. The families of the miners are just starting to live a changed life. My thoughts are with them.
