“I’m so grateful,” Erica Treadway said today, having been rescued from an abandoned mine, where she and three others were trapped for four days. They are under investigation but have not been charged.
=================================
This trio (had been four) were in the abandoned mine to scavenge copper that they could sell to buy opioids. West Virginia is a cesspool of poverty & drug abuse. These people should be charged & fined for the enormous cost involved in rescuing them.
