    That would be a hard decision to make.

    They were alive after the first colapse.
    They found their work belts, had been taken off.

    If the mine is as big as they say it is, they could be alive somewhere. I say keep drilling. I wouldn't be sending anyone in though. No use killing more miners.
    Hopefully the six were killed instantly, sure beats getting buried alive.

    I couldn't give up. I just couldn't. My own conscience wouldn't allow me to rest if I gave up. But I wouldn't expect anyone else to help me. Something in me just would NOT allow me to walk away from that **** hole without absolute PROOF that they were gone, or without dragging them out alive. I guess I am just stubborn.

    I couldn't listen to this story on the radio. It was like listening to a countdown to an execution.

    I don't see how any of them coud still be alive, but I still couldn't see me giving up. I'd probably still be in that **** hole in the ground, digging. Either they would come out alive, or I would bring the bodies home. I couldn't leave. Just the thought that even one might still be barely hanging on.... I couldn't give up. I'm just THAT blasted stubborn.
