17 Miners Rescued At Cayuga Mine
Officials say it appears a beam that kept an elevator car aligned in the Lansing mine shaft bent or broke before 17 miners got stuck in it 90 stories underground. Cargill Inc. is looking at that possibility as it and authorities explore what went wrong at the Cayuga mine in central New York. The miners were rescued Thursday morning after about 10 hours. The federal Mine Safety and Health Administration says it hasn't determined what caused the problem.
