    My heart goes out to them and the families.

    Hopefully, they will be able to get them all out soon. And I hope they don't panic and cause a riot trying to get out first. That's a lot of people.

      All trapped miners rescued in S. Africa
      By MICHELLE FAUL, Associated Press Writer 22 minutes ago

      CARLETONVILLE, South Africa - The last of 3,200 gold miners trapped for more than 24 hours in a deep shaft were brought safely to the surface Thursday night, ending one of South Africa's biggest rescue operations, mining officials said.



      The final workers emerged just after 9 p.m., singing and dancing, according to the Harmony Gold Mining Co. No casualties were reported.

        WOW and Thank God!! That was an astronimical number. This morning they had reported 1,000.

        So they know what they are doing over there.

        Here in Utah, the 6 miners lost at the Crandall mine are still down there. They can't even recover the bodies so the families can have some closure.

          I know, I feel so bad for those people.
          I thought about them when I heard about this one.

            Still a big story here especially since they are now saying that they were warned 3 years ago.
