Man Found Inside Boone County Mine

The West Virginia Office of Miners' Health Safety and Training sent mine rescue teams from Patriot Coal and safety inspectors to the Old Dorothy #2 Mine in Prenter Hollow of Boone County Wednesday afternoon after state officials say they received a report that a man went inside the mine. The Boone County Sheriff's Department also responded. Forty-nine year old Frank Toath was found inside the mine just before 7:00 P.M. He was taken to Charleston Area Medical Center Hospital to be evaluated. Deputies say they believe Toath was trying to steal copper.
