    Bushong said the miners were found cloistered together, looking as if they were on break. The clustered group of dead were sitting upright against the mine's craggy wall, some lying down, he said. One had his hands folded, apparently in prayer as carbon monoxide slowly put him eternally to sleep.

    Bushong meticulously went to each of them twice, gently feeling for pulses. All of them were cold, their bodies stiffening.

    Thanks Indagomood,

    Oh, that was so sad I felt tears coming up into my eyes as I read. Just so sad. Hopefully this will never happen again with the oncoming changes in the mining business.
