7 Miners Survive Rock Burst

Three miners remained in North Idaho hospitals this morning after a rock burst at the Lucky Friday Mine in Mullan injured seven miners Wednesday night. It was the third accident at the mine this year. Two miners died in the other incidents. Seven miners Wednesday night were transported by air and ambulance to area hospitals, according to the Shoshone County Sheriff’s Office. Six were taken to Shoshone Medical Center, where two were held overnight for observation, a nursing supervisor said. Injuries were mostly cuts and bruises. A seventh miner was taken to Kootenai Medical Center and was listed in fair condition there this morning/Spokesman-Review. More here. (AP file photo)

Question: Izzit it just me … or does the Lucky Friday Mine seem like a dangerous place to work?
