This same thing happened in Menominee County Michigan 18 years ago. Same type of pit. It was found to be a different gas that is more deadly than methane, it is heavier than air is harder to vent and is formed when agitated such as a pump running. Two of the five killed in MI. were breathing when pulled from the pit a 15 year old boy lived 6 hours after incident and died at Millwauke's Childrens Hospital of heart failure, autopsy showed all organs were damaged by gas. I hope they have OSHA investigate, that is who said the MI. incident was not methane. If you wish to contact me my e-mail is [email protected]
