It was 9 years ago this morning that an explosion ripped through International Coal Group’s Sago Mine in Upshur County, W.Va. Twelve miners died and another barely got out alive.
Miner Randal McCloy Jr. survived, and the miners killed were:
Tom Anderson, Terry Helms, Marty Bennett, Martin Toler, Marshall Winans, Junior Hamner, Jesse Jones, Jerry Groves, James Bennett, Jackie Weaver, Fred Ware, and David Lewis.
Investigators said the deaths were avoidable, and a report by Davitt McAteer’s team had plenty of blame to spread around.
