Elliot Lake is not that far away from us and the situation there during the past few days is hard to imagine. One confirmed dead, 30 missing and now they have just changed the mission from rescue to recovery which means that they don't expect to find survivors. There was one confirmed survivor on Sunday because with their equipment they could hear breathing but it is just not safe to try and find that person.
Elliot Lake has a great mining history and I know that during mine rescues, they never gave up until every man was recovered - I don't know why they can't do the same in this instance.
My thoughts and prayers are with them.
