17 Miners rescued in upstate NY


Recommended Posts



17 miners were trapped overnight in an elevator shaft. It was a ten-hour rescue and one of the fire department tactical rescue units on scene happens to be the fire department I have been in for a decade and my husband is an assistant chief. They train almost two hundred hours a year on tactical rescues alone and have a very very good technical/tactical rescue team, and so were called to the scene.

Everyone is safe, but it's making national news now, so I just wanted to brag on DH and his team. :)


(We were headed for a few days away, first time alone together after this difficult year, but I guess we will wait till he wakes up :) )

Good job to your dh and the whole rescue team! Enjoy your time away.


I live in the area (in the city) , and it was :scared: to wake up and see those headlines in the news. So glad and relieved everyone is ok

It was cold last night too. I had the same reaction as you when I heard it last night.

I don't get to brag on DH much so I am enjoying this.
