One Of Four Trapped Welsh Miners Found Dead

One Of Four Trapped Welsh Miners Found Dead

http://news.sky.com/home/uk-news/article/16070765

One of four men who were trapped in a flooded mine in South Wales has been found dead, police have said.

The identity of the man, who was found by rescuers overnight, has not been established.


horrible story this.. and my best wishes and prayers for the remaining three...
but my question ( before "The Local" pops in with this )....

Given that the poor man has not been I.D.'d as yet.... is it irresponsible of the media to have announced finding him ?

It's horrible, I hope the rest are found and escape in one piece.

"Private mine" worries me, this is exactly what the NUM faught to solve and improve with success over many years. (before Thatcher destroyed the union.)

"Safety in mines", inherently dangerous in nature but since when has safety been a priority of a mine owner?

Well that particular mine owner is apparently one of the three men who are missing. However, the photograph below is recent. This is how working mines in the UK look nowadays .

"The body of a second miner has been found at the Gleision Colliery in South Wales, police confirm. Two miners remain missing."

...and rescuers said they are "in no position" to get the 2nd body out, which is terrible, both for the waiting relatives as identification is impossible, and for the missing two
