RIP Pike River Miners


A second blast at the Pike River coal mine has sealed the fate of the 29  trapped miners (men, sons, fathers and husbands).  All of them are now presumed  dead. RIP.

Families were notified soon after the second explosion ripped through the methane filled mine. As emotions overflowed several people vented their anger at the mine representatives, who they believed failed to use windows of opportunities to rescue the men.  One father claimed that it smelled of a cover-up and that the second explosion was suspicious. Ironically after the second explosion rescue teams are now entering the mine.

  1. This is so sad. I don’t know anything about how mines are operated in New Zealand, but if it’s anything like they are in the states, the truth isn’t likely to see the light of day!

      This is just so tragic. Those poor families must be devastated espacially the parents of the 21 year old man. His young life just gone. Before coming to Oz my family were all coal miners and it’s a hard life for the men. God help them all.
