    I hope none of the 3 still in there had children. How terrifying that would be.

    Has the man that emerged not given them info on the other 3? Does he not know where they are? Was he separated from them before he escapesd?
    This is bizarre.

    Search expands for 3 missing at West Virginia mine

    Workers are removing water and pumping fresh air into the nonoperational coal mine in Raleigh County, as they search for three people stuck inside. (per 15 hours ago.)

    On Monday night, about midnight, one of the original four trapped miners, Eddie Williams, exited the underground mine. Sheriff VanMeter said Williams did not need to be hospitalized, and is working with police to find the other three, including providing details about their location. Rescue teams worked Monday night, but had to come out on Tuesday because oxygen reserves were depleted.

    A search for three missing people in an underground mine continues Wednesday in Raleigh County.

    Rescue crews have still been unable to enter the mine on the Boone County side, which is the main mine portal. Although pumps continue drawing water out, the levels remain too deep for rescuers to proceed.

    Rescue efforts continue for 3 missing in abandoned West Virginia coal mine

    Once fully recovered from their experience, perhaps they could each do some community service, or join their local fire/rescue squads :) I'm thrilled they all made it out ok!

    Glad that they are okay. They did go in the mine looking for copper wires.

    Officials have said that the group went into the cave in search of copper wire -- a lucrative commodity in a financially-depressed region of the state.

    No coal has been extracted from the mine for two years, officials said.

    The rescue teams were unable to locate the three people on Monday and expanded their search on Tuesday, progressing more than 4,000 ft. into the mine before locating the missing three on Wednesday evening, officials said.

    There is a pending criminal investigation into the group's activities upon entering the mine, officials said. Authorities rescue 3 trapped in a West Virginia coal mine since Saturday

    So they were able to go that far into the mine to look for copper wire - but were unable to come back out they went in?
    I would too scared to even step into an abandoned mine. And once they found it - they were just going to drag it out?
    What prevented them from doing that?
