One of the two miners reported missing following last night’s deep-mine collapse in Western Kentucky was killed in the accident, according to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). The Senate Minority Leader made the announcement on the chamber floor this afternoon.

“Many Kentuckians awoke this morning to the sad news that one miner was killed and another is missing after a ceiling collapse in an underground coal mine in Webster County, which is in the western part of Kentucky,” McConnell said. “Right now, it is my understanding that MSHA officials are on the site, and rescue teams are working to locate the missing miner. For now, we can only hope that their efforts are successful. I ask my colleagues and the American people to keep the miners, their families, and the rescue workers in their prayers.”
