Hope turns to tragedy for miners in New Zealand

Authorities have told families of the 29 NZ miners trapped that none of them would have survived the second blast. For five days a wave of grief had been held at bay by the sustaining power of hope in the small mining communities around Greymouth on the west coast of New Zealand's South Island.

Then, in one raw moment yesterday afternoon, all hope was dashed for relatives and friends of the 29 missing miners. A second explosion at Pike River, bigger and uglier than the first, ripped through the mine. Perhaps the men were already dead; certainly, they are now.
