stuck two miles underground

It’s kinda sad about those miners that died in WV.  I remember when i was in Penn, back in 01.  I went sight seeing with a friend of mine’s father.  He took me by the old strip mines out there.  Told me stories about how they would dig up under a river bed and end up flooding the entire mine killing everyone inside.  Or colapses that would happen.. or fires that would only be put out by plugging the mine with people still trapped inside.  It all seamed rather surreal until just this week.   13 miners were stuck for two days.. only one made it out.
