Four Trapped Miners


Tragically one of the four men trapped underground in a coal mine near Swansea has died. Condolences to his loved-ones.

I'm interested to see how this event is portrayed by the media in comparison to when a similar tragedy befalls a soldier in Afghanistan. See here for background:

There's a HPANWO Forum thread discussing non-Military memorials too:

The only reason fewer miners get injured and killed nowadays is because most of the coal mines in Wales are now closed down.

(Addendum- 19/9/11: All four men perished in the mine. Very sorry to hear that.)
