2 mine workers killed in Missouri accident

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Two workers who fell to their deaths in a southeast Missouri mine have been identified by their employer.

Mississippi Lime Company president Bill Ayers issued a statement saying 53-year-old John Hahl of Farmington and 29-year-old Chris Rawson of Hillsboro died in the accident around 8:30 a.m. Friday.

Hahl and Rawson were working in a lime mine near the town of Ste. Genevieve, about 60 miles south of St. Louis.

Ste. Genevieve County Coroner Leo Basler says the men were in a basket extended from a truck removing loose rock from either the wall or the ceiling of the mine.

Basler says loose rock hit the basket and detached it. The men fell to their death.

A settlement has been reached between the United Mine Workers of America and St. Louis-based Patriot Coal. It's been a long, hard-fought battle between the mine workers and Patriot Coal, as well as Patriot's parent company, Peabody Energy. UMWA president Cecil Roberts says the new terms and conditions of employment are "significant improvements" over what was previously ordered by a bankruptcy judge in May. Roberts says the new agreement now heads to the UMWA members for ratification. That will take place on Friday. The mine workers say that Peabody spun off Patriot Coal in an attempt to avoid paying union wages and health benefits to employees. The details of the new agreement won't be released until after the union votes on Friday.
