That was a terrible accident. I still have a problem with those guys not being found. I know they never did find some of the guys at Farmington either but, still tragic.

Thanks, yeah I have been looking for some good info and pics on that too. Not a whole lot was published originally. The pictures are pretty scary actually.. Those pillars didn't look good.
