Tragic Update: Only One Miner Is Alive, Twelve Dead In West Virginia

Update on the news earlier: tragically, twelve miners are dead in the mining disaster in West Virginia, and only one has survived thus far.

Randall McCloy is alive. All twelve other miners are dead - the families are doubtless devastated.

The media and the blogosphere may have been hasty in breaking the story, but they relied on on-the-ground information, which was apparently based on cell-phone conversations that were inaccurate.

Learnings from this event are manifold, and will take time to emerge.
