Four miners died and nine who rushed in to help were missing and feared dead after explosions rocked the nation's deepest coal mine. If the deaths of all 13 are confirmed, it would be the worst mining accident in the United States since 1984. "These great acts of unselfishness are eerily reminiscent of the heroes of our Sept. 11 national tragedy," said Don DeFosset, chief executive officer of Walter Industries, which owns the mine and its operator, Jim Walter Resources Inc.
