Mine rescue continues

The week's news at a glance.

Huntington, Utah

Hope for the rescue of six coal miners trapped underground for more than 10 days faded this week, as images transmitted from the mine failed to show any signs of life in the area where the miners were thought to be working. Rescuers have drilled two narrow, 1,800-foot vertical shafts into a chamber within the mine where the six may have taken shelter. Video cameras and sound equipment lowered into the chamber failed to detect any sound or movement. Rescuers are drilling a third hole, and plan to drill a fourth. If those efforts fail to locate the miners or detect any signs of life, said mine owner Robert Murray, “at that point we are running out of possibilities.”
