TWO TRAPPED COAL MINERS. THEIR
LOVED-ONES DID NOT SURVIVE. RESCUERS

FOUND THE BODIES SATURDAY -- NEARLY 48
HOURS AFTER A FIRE BROKE OUT

INSIDE THE MINE WHERE THE MEN WORKED.

(SOT: Doug Conaway/State Mine Safety


Chief)

"Unfortunately we don't have a positive
outcome but we did find the two

miners near the fire area."

33-YEAR OLD DON BRAGG AND 47-YEAR OLD
ELLERY 'ELVIS" HATFIELD HAD BEEN

MISSING SINCE THURSDAY NIGHT, WHEN A
CONVEYOR BELT CAUGHT FIRE INSIDE

THE ARACOMA NUMBER ONE MINE. THEY
SOMEHOW GOT SEPARATED FROM A GROUP OF

MINERS THAT MANAGED TO ESCAPE.
OFFICIALS SAY IT APPEARS BOTH MEN MADE
A

VALIANT EFFORT TO TRY TO GET OUT.



(SOT: Jesse Cole/Federal Mine, Safety



and Health Administration)

"There would have been heavy smoke and
high C-O so it was very very

short for the period of time that they
were in there."

(STANDUP BRIDGE)

OVER THE SPAN OF SEVERAL HOURS,
RESCUERS WERE UNABLE TO ENTER THAT

PORTION OF THE MINE ... BECAUSE OF THE
FLAMES, THICK SMOKE AND INTENSE

HEAT.

THIS IS WEST VIRGINIA'S SECOND MINING
TRAGEDY IN LESS THAN A MONTH.

THIRTEEN MEN WERE TRAPPED IN THE SAGO
MINE ON JANUARY 2ND. ONLY ONE OF

THEM SURVIVED.

(SOT: GOV. JOE MANCHIN/D-WEST VIRGINIA)



"This has got to stop and it's going to
stop."

WEST VIRGINIA'S GOVERNOR SAYS THE
MINERS HAVE NOT DIED IN VAIN.

ON MONDAY, HE PLANS TO INTRODUCE
LESGISLATION THAT WILL DEAL WITH

EMERGENCY RESPONSE TIMES, TRACKING
DEVICES, AND UNDERGROUND OXYGEN

RESERVES FOR MINERS.

(NAT)

MEANWHILE, THIS MINING TOWN IS
REMEMBERING BRAGG AND HATFIELD ....


MINERS WITH 27 YEARS OF MINING
EXPERIENCE COMBINED ... WHO LEAVE
BEHIND

WIVES, CHILDREN, AND A RENEWED
DETERMINATION ON THE PART OF MANY .. TO

MAKE THIS WAY OF LIFE SAFER.

screen and tickles the twine on a deep

The Riverdogs had some scoring
