Explosion in a Coal Mine, Three Killed

Three miners have been killed on Friday night in a methane explosion in the Ziminka coal mine in southwest Siberia’s Kemerovo Region.

      According to the local emergency service, the accident took place because of poisonous gas leak inside the mine. At that time of the accident, 8 miners were working in an abnormal area, 5 of them managed to escape safely. The bodies of three other miners were discovered later. On the whole, about 95 miners were working in the mine that time.

      Kemerovo Governor Aman Tuleyev has taken personal control of the accident response and ordered to organize a special investigation commission. All miners in the Kemerovo region will be carefully inspected.

      The governor and the mine owner agreed that each of the families of those killed will receive all legal compensation, an extra 2 million rubles (about $62,000) and an apartment. Children of the killed miners will be supported by the government until they turn 18.

      In May 2010, two huge methane explosions in the "Raspadskaya" coal mine claimed lives of 91 people.
