SIPESVILLE, Pa. —
It's been 10 years since all nine trapped miners were found alive in the Quecreek Mine. It was on this day a decade ago, on July 28, 2002, when the world first saw the unforgettable images of nine miners being pulled from the ground in Somerset County. A flood trapped the miners more than 240 feet underground for 77hours -- more than three days. The rescue site has since become a national monument, full of pictures, collections of the miners' personal items and artifacts of the rescue. To commemorate the rescue, a celebration will be held at the site on Saturday.
Former Pennsylvania governor forever tied to the rescue, "All nine are alive," will also be in attendance as one of the speakers.
