    Three Dead In Ky. Mine Explosion

    Early Morning Blast Leaves Two Workers Missing




    HOLMES MILL, Ky., May 20, 2006
    (AP) An explosion in an eastern Kentucky coal mine killed three miners and left two other workers missing, a federal mine safety official said Saturday.

    The blast at the Darby Mine No. 1 in Harlan County occurred between midnight and 1 a.m. EDT while a maintenance shift was on duty, said Amy Louviere, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration.

    The three dead miners were found by rescue workers, she said. One other miner was able to walk out of the mine but two were missing, she said.
