watery wednesday: Mining exploding



http://waterywednesday.blogspot.com/

In the South Island of New Zealand, a mine in Greymouth had an explosion. After waiting 6 days in tenterhook, today a second explosion blasted. Twenty nine mums have become bereaved mums like me. My heart goes out to them.

addition: Thank you all for your for your sympathy. This is the darkiest day for New Zealand, especially this is the 21st century, and when the Chilleans were all saved after being trapped for so long.

Each man had a story. The young was only 17.

We across the Big Ditch have also watched in horror as the disaster unfolded and as the wave of grief swept over those waiting for news.

Coal mining is such a dangerous process and in the end result pollutes the world and only fills the pockets of the wealthy.

I mourn with you all in New Zealand.

My husband works as a service and technical manager of Volvo cars for Wearne comapny Singapore, but also regional manager for several countries here in Southeast Asia.

Has never been in New Zealand, but there are in the planning before we move back to Sweden.
I love New Zealand because there are no snakes there!
