During the summer of 2002, nine coal miners were trapped for four days in the Quecreek Mine in Somerset, PA. Through combined efforts of local, state, federal agencies, and many volunteers, all nine miners were successfully recovered by drilling a rescue shaft to their underground prison. It was fascinating to visit this location and learn of the amazing rescue that took place here. There were many technical difficulties that had to be overcome for the mission to be successful. God was certainly at work in this!
Through some unique circumstances, we ended up getting a special tour of the museum and rescue site from a kind man named Greg T. who lead the rescue. He had many years of mine rescue experience and it was incredible to listen to his stories!
