The New Zealand Mine Disaster Update

New Zealand South Island

Rescue officials on Monday were preparing to send a high-tech robot into a mine tunnel to transmit pictures and assess toxic gas levels three days after an explosion left 29 miners missing underground. Police superintendent Gary Knowles, the rescue controller, said the New Zealand defense department had upgraded the robot so it would not create a spark and accidentally ignite a fresh explosion in the mine, near Atarau on South Island. But they were still waiting for gas conditions to stabilize further before sending the robot in, Knowles said.

Continue to pray for those folks.
