摘 要：On Tuesday, February 19, 2013, at approximately 7:15 p.m., John Myles, a 44- year-old shuttle car operator with four years of total mining experience was fatally injured when he was pinned underneath the rear frame of a rubber-tired battery-powered section scoop. The accident occurred on the Number 3 Section, 002-0 Mechanized Mining Unit (MMU), in the connecting crosscut between the Number 5 and Number 6 entries, two crosscuts inby the section dumping point at survey station No. 1170, and 2 crosscuts outby the working face. The accident occurred as the victim was shoveling loose coal and loose material near the ribs in a crosscut adjacent to an entry where a miner was operating a scoop to clean the roadway. The scoop entered the crosscut in a reverse direction and struck the victim, pinning him beneath the batteries of the machine.
