About: knox mine disaster location and footage

This is amazingly sad, what a disaster!!
It was a terribly sad day when this mining accident happened. The 12 men who were trapped and died were never found - I believe they were most likely pushed out of the breach and were washed downstream - was any search done downstream ?
With the acid mine drainage still bubbling up into the fresh water what is the quality of the water and are there any restrictions in place for people who might want to fish or swim in that water ?
Thank you for the respectful way you made this video - as always it was educational and very interesting 👍😁💕
And what happened to the entrance of the mine?
So where are the coal cars?
great video liked
This is so sad! May They Rest in Peace!
So sad
Once again readiness of men as cost the loss of life. The monetary system which ambitions ingredients demanding more and more nature keep giving us worming that is not going to give in into our wimp.
The red color signifies the blood of the 12 abandoned/killed men. My opinion only
All these men needlessly perished because a few greedy men wanted even more. How much is enough? I hope their survivors bled the mine owners dry. The dirtbags probably filed bankruptcy. At least they got something from insurance and workman's compensation as it was called in the past. Since it was 1959, probably not much. If there is a hell, that's where they are going and rightly so along with their slimy attorneys.
12 souls robbed of life way before their time. Greed still rules this world to this day. So sad that people have to die so others get to be filthy rich.😔 That footage was something to see but hard to watch at the same time, thanks JP.
Very heartwrenching😢
2.7 million gallons PER MINUTE! I suspect that the 12 lost miners were swiftly swept away. I wonder what restitution was made to their families.
Beautifully done video. Appreciate the respect and empathy your video portrays. Wondering how much the seepage is affecting the environment there.
Very sad . Also seeing those railroad cars sent over into the water so eerie . RIP MEN
OMG 😢😢😢 RIP ❤❤❤ Such a tragedy ...
The price of everything, the value of nothing.
Sad part of PA mining history that is still impacting the area today. Thanks for sharing.
So tragic😢! It is unbelievable the power of nature. My heart goes out to those miners and their families
This is so sad. 🙏🏻❤️🙁🇺🇸
