Men trapped in Utah mine
Efforts are underway to free the six men trapped in a central Utah mine after a cave-in early yesterday morning. Yesterday all efforts to reach the miners, or even make contact failed because of too much debris blocking all entrances. Today, officials hope to drill straight down from the top of the mine to the area where they believe the miners are located. Officials do not know if the men are alive but say if they're in an open area they should have enough air and water to survive for several days.
