W.Va. mine survivor recounts underground blast

Melvin Lynch was working far from Monday's coal mine explosion in West Virginia and didn't hear or feel it but his brother, Roosevelt, died in the blast. Lynch said he has been working in the mines for more than 10 and is doing his best to cope. (April 7) (The Associated Press)
