A health inspector finds violations in a restaurant that are critical and they close a restaurant down till it is fixed. A mines has critical violations and its a money game. The mines should have been closed and remained that way until inspectors said it was safe to go back. Now my kids dad is scarred for life and now the investigators are back. Too little too late. You sit down and have to tell your children that their father is hurt and will never be the same and watch their heart break.

I have to agree 100%, i work on the section that this happend on, i could tell you stories that would make your hair raise,i wish they would shut down. i mean i know kids have to eat,but they also need thier father there to love them enough to get them food.
Im in the process of transfering to another mine,and i wish everyone else would to.

Why do you have to work in the mines anyway? Go find another job, or at least go get an education to be employed by a company or a small local business. Life/Family is way to important to worry everyday if the mine your working in is safe or not. If you know it is NOT safe, then use your god given brain and find another job that does not require you to go beneath the earth.

Our prayers are with the injured individuals & their families.
