About: Coal - EP 3 - Roof Bolter Runs Risk
I worked with ole Hank when he was a red hat at Massey. Crazy son of a gun. Sad to see about the drugs. I hope he gets his life together because he is really one hell of a guy.
I've bolted top goin on 7 years now here in Southern West Virginia. Id argue it's the most dangerous job in the country. Or at least among them. Like the Man says you never know when it's gonna fall. Sometimes people don't do die when the roof goes. But like he said you're gonna wish you were dead! I broke my hand a few years ago. My glove got caught on the bolter and I couldn't get my hand out of the way in time. Worst pain id ever felt. I was back to work the next day. Sad part about mining is that it's all there is here. No other industry. Even if you don't die underground you still die from black lung. So it's either you die from being killed underground, or you die a long painful death. I wish there were more to do round here. But I can promise you that you're gonna work this job any day then sit and watch your family starve or suffer. If you're any decent kinda person at least.
Brave men or crazy men. You couldn't pay me enough! Hats off miners.

You never know when it´s gonna fall !
