Pretty moving stuff, if you haven't been watching the live feeds. And all the more impressive since there's a camera down in the mine so you can see the rescue from both ends. Hats off to all who had a role in bringing those guys safely to the surface. When the news stories of the year are voted on in a couple of months, this will rank among the leaders.

One of the companies that helped with the relief effort was from Berlin, PA. They were a big part in the Quecreek Mine incident 8 years ago and have been involved in a lot of other mine operations of similar status.

The one guy was interviewed on the local news here lastnight about wanting to put together a national group for disasters like this with response teams across the country so action and first response can happen faster.
