    2 Coal Miners trapped Barton, MD

    FOX news has been reporting on this.
    It happened right up the road from me....about 15 minutes from where I sit right now. I know many people from there. Barton borders the town I grew up in until I was in 5th grade. I know many miners up there. Please pray for these guys.

    Still Trapped

    BARTON - Rescue operations continued full-force Wednesday to reach two trapped strip mine workers who were buried with their heavy equipment Tuesday at the Tri-Star Mining Co. site.

    Under the direction of federal Mine Safety and Health Administration officials, work to remove thousands of tons of earthen materials that began at 6 p.m. Tuesday continued throughout the night and into Wednesday morning.

    "Debris is being loaded into 100-ton trucks at the rate of 25 to 30 loads per hour. But there is still a long way to go," said MSHA spokeswoman Amy Louviere.

    Hey--I logged on this morning and saw your thread, and logged on this evening before I go to bed. I have been thinking of these miners all day, and praying for the best possible outcome.

    They still haven't got to them yet.

    Update from our local paper:

    The men trapped are Dale Jones & Mike Wilt. Please keep them in your thoughts. I know Mike Wilt's family. They are devastated, obvioulsy. We are holding out hope that they are trapped in the cabs of the equipment and not in the rubble itself. Please keep sending the prayers. Thanks to all of you.

    Looks like they haven't reached the trapped men yet...

    BARTON - Safety concerns amidst round-the-clock excavating at the Tri-Star Mining Co. site where two miners have been trapped for the past 48 hours interrupted the rescue efforts for about seven hours early Thursday.

    In addition, explosives used in two separate charges to remove a dangerous section of the high wall atop the rescue site brought "the majority of material" back in on the area where it had been previously removed.
