Three people remain trapped in an abandoned mine in the mountains of West Virginia.
The man said the three people left trapped were alive and gave authorities details of their location, according to Justice’s office: Rescue teams failed to find them overnight Monday. Rescuers expanded their search on Tuesday after removing standing water from the mine and pumping in fresh air, the statement from the governor’s office said.
The underground mine is inactive and sealed, Contura Energy, whose affiliate Elk Run Coal owns the property, told CNN, adding that the person who made it out “was apprehended by law enforcement.”“We are in contact and full cooperation with the appropriate state and federal mine safety agencies to locate the remaining missing individuals,” a company spokesperson said in a statement.
This is the second trespassing incident at an abandoned mine reported in the last two weeks, Justice said in the statement: “Our priority is rescuing these individuals and maintaining the safety of our mine rescue teams,” the governor said. “I have ordered the coordination of all resources needed for rescuers to continue to search the mine. We’re doing everything we can to accelerate the rescue.”
The search and rescue team includes the Office of Miners’ Health, Safety and Training: West Virginia National Guard; West Virginia State Police; Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office; Boone County Sheriff’s Office and mine officials.
