Australian Tasmanian Miner Larry Knight

On April 28th, 2006 in Beaconsfield, Tasmania three men became trapped in a mine, nearly 1000 Metres underground from what was thought to be a minor earthquake, which triggered a rock fall. At the time 17 men were underground. Fourteen men escaped and three were listed as missing. After three days, the body of Australian Tasmanian miner Larry Knight was found and then mercifully, two days later, the other two miners, Brant Webb and Tod Russell were located alive.
