PUT ON CNN NOW - Okay, so now 11 of the 12 miners are dead, allegedly

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

If this is true, someone screwed up big time. How do you say publicly - say to the FAMILIES - that 12 survived and now say "oops" 11 died and one survived?

Family members learned early Wednesday that 11 of the 12 coal miners who were initially thought to have survived an explosion in a coal mine have died.

Families learned of the deaths from mine officials more than three hours after Gov. Joe Manchin said he had been told 12 of the miners survived the disaster. The sole survivor of the disaster was hospitalized, a doctor said.
Anderson Cooper is ripping the coal/mining company. They knew, according to Anderson, 20 minutes after the news broke that the 12 had survived that in fact several did NOT survive. But since the coal company didn't have all the information, they didn't say anything for three hours, leaving the media and the families to believe that 12 had survived. Jesus. Now the company gets to worry about emotional distress damages added to the lawsuits.

Oh boy, Anderson is ticked. This is amazing TV for 3 in the morning.

And now the governor's spokesperson is saying that the governor never said "the exact words" that all 12 were alive.

And Anderson is again saying that the company knew some mistake happened 20 minutes after the good news came out, but they didn't say boo for 3 hours.

ANDERSON: "Why in God's name did they wait three hours to tell family members?"

The governor inside the church called it a miracle.

The mining company is toast. They sat back quietly while the families thought their family members survived.

Massive lawsuit.
