Pike River Mine - New Zealand

{327~365}

On Friday 19th of November there was a large gas explosion in the Pike River mine in Greymouth, New Zealand. It's now Tuesday night and the 29 miners trapped in the mine have not been seen or heard of since. As of now a rescue team has not been sent into the mine due to dangerously high levels of toxic gas that have remained in the mine.

 

All my thoughts are with the 29 miners and their families.
