    Thumbs up Miners are out!!!!

    Just live on CNN! They are out! They were asking for a miracle and it was granted. I am so happy for their families. I have worked in the Coal Mines up here and have been through this 7 or so years ago. I just can't express how glad I am for all those involved and the families and also sadness for the family of the miner that did not.

    Good deal!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: Miners are out!!!!

    I heard the report on AAR, 12 of the 13 trapped miners are alive. Some require medical attention. If I understand correctly the miner who lost his life, saved the others. I'm so happy that their prayers were answered.

    Re: Miners are out!!!!

    That is truely a miracle!!!! I wasn't holding out much hope that any of them would make it out, how wonderfully fantastic that almost all of them did, and thoughts and prayers to the family of the one who didn't.

    this has to be one of the worst cases of trying to make a happy headline too soon. Those poor families that were told 12 survived.

    They updated the story I linked.

    Very sad-
    Especially the emotional swing the families are enduring.
    Prayers to them.
