On the hazards of a coal miner's work

The Media General papers' Rex Bowman penned this article titled Miners aware of job's dangers, with interviews of SW Virginia coal miners on the hazards of their profession.

Lately it seems that I talk to people in and around the coal business almost every day. Each of them has recalled underground accidents that happened to them or people they know.

Here is a link to a paper from 1987 titled "A Hundred Years of Mining Explosions in Southwest Virginia."
