    Re: 12 Trapped W.Va. Miners Found Alive

    Of the 12 that were thought to be alive, 11 were dead. Apparently -- someone
    not an official of the mine or anyone in authority -- jumped the gun and called someone at the church on a cell phone and gave them bad information that 12 were alive. From there, it took off into the premature celebration before any confirmation.

    This is unbelieveably horrible for the survivors. God bless them. NOT GOOD NEWS as first thought!

    Holy crap!!! I don't know what to say. Two hours later and the link now goes to a different article. Even Nightline had a special on the rescue right after the Orange Bowl.

    This is very sad.

    That was just terrible how they handled that whole thing.

    God bless the families of those who died.

    Yeah, it's unfortunate but it turns out only 1 guys survived, and he was the youngest of the men.
