So tragic.

I might be wrong but it appears the men drowned from the high water levels

Those miners whom have died. I am so upset right now. My heart goes out to their families and co workers. I hope they get the help and support they need,

Absolutely heartbreaking.

My heart goes out to all the families involved.

These miners were so brave doing their job. May they rest in peace.

My family's prayers are also with the families of the miners. I'm of Welsh/Native American descent, but have never traveled to Wales.

Rest well brothers,
my forefathers worked in the pits in South Wales.
I still have some of their diaries from the early 20thcentury.

We still haven't worked out how to stop accidents today.
A damn shame.

RIP Brothers,on Owain Glyndwr day September the 16th 2011.

My mothers side of the family are all from The Rhonda Valley and many of my relatives have worked in this harsh and dangerous industry. Its such a shame that in this day and age this has happened, this should be a thing of the past, but something here has gone very wrong.

I feel for their poor families and hope that they didn't suffer. We are made to believe that these dangerous jobs are now almost risk free but so many die every year in construction and industrial jobs.

The health and safety executive waste so much time working against employers and this friction causes many accidents as the HSE are not taken seriously or are seen as focusing on justifying their well paid jobs in any way possible, even if it means financially bankrupting a company by not helping them meet new requirements which are suddenly enacted. The HSE imo need to stop being counter productive, they are hated by most people in these industries and this obviously can't help.

My family's hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to the families, friends and community of these men.

Working in the dark so you don't have to.

4 more brave, hard working and responsable men lost to the curse of money..

It makes me fricken ill!

So many wasters out there who are too busy getting their end away, looking cool, not living up to their responsabilities whilst real men who are worthy to be called men are dying in their place...

There is no justice!

My thoughts and prayers are with those families who have lost true men..

So true. Did you see the hideous creature that was jailed for Facebook trolling of dead teens? I am not a violent person but sure as hell feel like it when you read about such losers.
Why? Why? Why? Low intelligence is no crime - but low life's are a different ball game, a waste of air. I guess it is that kind of sick injustice that means we will never fully understand this world.

Re the miners - what a heartbreaking, painful tale. Really sad to hear this news today. My stomach flipped imagining what those guys must have went through. Their poor families will be suffering terribly - what a shock. I just hope that in time they can find the strength and peace to get through it.

I asked God to give us the last miner alive, a little miracle out of a tragedy, but no, God is very hard to understand sometimes, i mean always.

sad times in the valleys...i thought i would end this thread with a poem i just found .

Four Mighty Souls

They've cut their final coal,
From the mountains soaking seams.
No longer will they hurt,
Or sweat from darkened dreams.
For they the mighty four now rest,
Upon angels soothing wings.
No longer will they toil their days
Or fear what morning brings.
Though mortal angels toiled and strived,
To bring them safely home.
Their souls had left this earthly place,
Just heaven now to roam.
But they the mighty four we know,
Will stay in our hearts and minds.
For we the Welsh owe our heritage,
To that brave and selfless kind.
