Default Utah Miners

Ok i am pretty sure you guys have heard about the miners trapped in a mine In Utah about 2 weeks ago. Rescue efforts were made a week aho and 3 rescue workers died in a cave in. Mine officials decided to stop the search. The trapped miners families are outraged that they halted the stop.

Do you think they should continue looking for their bodies?(sadly it is pretty obvious they are dead). Even at a risk of more workers dying?

If Any Member needs to talk to me about anything, Just PM me, the door is always open.

no the families need ta deal
risking rescue workers lives when theres hope the miners are alive is one thing
there rescue workers its there job
but to risk more human life simply for a couple bodies
no
a live human being is more important then a corpse

Unfortunatly, mining is a job that you need to take with caution. Personally, I would look for them, but, I respect their opinion not wanting to waste their time looking for dead people.

I think they absolutely should have continued looking for the bodies. Those family members will be haunted forever with thoughts of "What if they found a way out?" etc. To have the bodies would at least confirm their fears and bring a sence of closure.

but is it really worth more lives lost? just to find some dead bodies? I think the families need to accept the hard truth that their loved ones are dead.

If there are rescue workers willing to continue the search they should. And you say the families should accept that their loved ones are dead as if we're talking about a rosebush in the garden dying. You can't just say, "Oh your husband's dead. Get over it."

Well unfortunatly the people are dead, and accepting it is pretty much the families and friends' only option. I'd agree that if there was reason to believe that there were still survivors then by all means let the rescue team risk their lives to try and save them, but i really dont believe that risking more lives is really worth finding a few dead bodies.

Like I said, if there are people willing to go, they should be allowed to. And I still think you're being rather incompassionate.

PS that was your 3,500th post. Lol just sayin

how can you say a dead miners body is more valuble then a rescue workers life
they have family's to who now have to struggle without them

i think its unrealistic
and flat out unethical to demand they keep searching

they did a ton of air quality tests and the signs were extremly dismal
they tried time after time again to drill through and couldnt
they tried to contact them by wailing on the walls anything to see if they'd get some sign back
nothing the entire time
they searched and tried for a LONG time

And why should they want to
Why should you expect them to put there lives on the line risk leaving there family's all for a few bodies that are mangled and decomposing at best
They need to accept that there gone

I think your being incompassionate to the lives of the rescue workers and there family's

I'm not demanding that they continue the search- I said if there were workers who were willing to continue, they should.

And it's not necessarily the body that's more valuable than a worker's life, it's the peace that it will bring the families. Regardless of how much solid, dead-on proof that there is no possible way the miners could have survived, there is no way to really prove that they're dead without the bodies to show it. There will forever be thoughts of "what if" and hopes for miracles. Imagine the days and nights mothers and wives will gaze out of their windows, wondering, hoping that their loved one will walk up to the door one day and say, "Hey, guess what!" How can anyone accept that a loved one is gone just because someone says they are?
