MINE EXPLOSION-ANNIVERSARY
On 4th anniversary of deadly W.Va. mine disaster, political leaders remember the 29 killed

CHARLESTON, W.Va.


West Virginia political leaders are remembering 29 miners killed in the Upper Big Branch mine disaster on the fourth anniversary of the nation's deadliest mining accident in 40 years.

In a statement issued ahead of Saturday's anniversary, Sen. Jay Rockefeller said April 5 should be reserved for remembering the men lost in the "horrific disaster" and the families they left. His counterpart, Sen. Joe Manchin, said not a day passes without a thought of the 29 "brave miners."

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin urged West Virginians to visit a memorial at the Capitol to pay tribute to the miners. He said he wrote a note in a book of thoughts and prayers at the memorial.

Rep Nick Rahall said all should work to ensure that another such tragedy does not occur.
