Last year 22 people died, nationwide, while exploring abandoned mines.
Victims of mining accidents have encountered deadly odorless gases, fell down holes that opened under their weight, drowned in near-freezing pools of water at the bottom of shafts, and were buried in unpredictable cave-ins.
Many people are injured and killed every year while "just exploring" abandoned mines. Don't be a victim.
Be Smart. Stay Out. Stay Alive.
