Comments: More Problems At The Utah Mine

It is a very sad and tragic situation. Now two of the rescuers are dead. Some of them are related to those in trapped in the mine. I hope families aren't facing double tragedy.

I'm getting a little tired of the tone the press has taken with anyone willing to do a press conference. Vultures.

I am convinced that there was seismic activity in the mine to cause this all to occur - and that seismic activity is also part of the Peru earthquake.

My prayers go out to those families.

RT - Agreed. It's a no-win situation for the company. If they call off the search, they will be second-guessed about whether the miners could have been saved or not. On the other hand, the rescuers are dying now. It's a terrible situation.

Judy - I was just discussing that earlier this afternoon. There MUST be a correlation between the two. Awful.
