Mexico Mine Disaster and Robots

Juan Rojas caught the mine disaster in Mexico- a coal mine and methane-related explosion. The Mine Safety and Health Administration, which owns the only mine-permissible robot in the world, has been in contact with the embassy. It is not a good fit for their Wolverine-variant robot, as the miners were in a small area, crews were able to get in and recover some victims but are blocked by rubble (which would also block the golf cart robot).

Our hearts go out to the victims, the injured (the 15 year boy- the age of my son- who lost both arms), and the families- and it is sad that robots could not help.
