New Zealand is praying and waiting for the safe return of the 29 coal miners trapped underground after a mine explosion in the Pike River Mine on the West Coast of the South Island ....
24 New Zealanders
1 Scotsman
1 Englishman
1 South African
2 Australians

Footnote .... sadly there was a second large explosion today 24th November 2010 . There will be no survivors apart from the two men that were able to walk out after the first explosion. It is a dark and sad day for the West Coast and New Zealand.
