West Virginia Miners

I'm sure many of you have been following this story as I have. They just reported that they have found 12 of the miners alive. They had found one who had not made it, earlier today, and they said they were not holding out much hope for the others. I don't know yet what condition they are in, but I was just thankful to hear that 12 of them were found alive. It didn't say that they have gotten them out yet, but it said they were located.

I just heard the good news when I turned on the 10 pm news. Let's hope that the others are OK.

Unhappy

They just came on and announced that someone released the wrong information to the press and to the families.

They are now saying that 12 of 13 miners are desceased and the 13th, a 26 yr old, is in critical condition in a trauma unit.

Our prayers are with the families of the miners tonight.

God Bless

So sad!!! They should make real sure of the information before passing it on. I know it's hard with that many people in the action at the time,but, it hurts that family more to be told they are alive and then so say, oh whoops, i was wrong. God bless all of them!!

It saddens me so to hear about multiple deaths or even one death..We see this on the news and it rocks us to our souls..Just imagine, being a wife, mother, sister, brother father or mother and having this happen..I cannot imagine the pain..May all our prayers in some small way bring them just a little peace.

I was so happy last night and devastated when I heard the news today. I hope the one survivor will be ok. That is such a dangerous job.
