The mine collapse was reported around 3:30 p.m. at the Lane Laurel Aggregates Lake Mine located along Springhill Furnace Road in Springhill Township. The American Red Cross in Greater Pennsylvania said in a tweet Friday evening that they were being asked to provide mental health and support services to the site of the mine collapse. “The trained and skilled Red Cross is on their way to provide assistance and support,” the Red Cross tweeted. Officials from the Ministry of Environmental Protection said the person was trapped in an underground part of the quarry mine. “This is a quarry, but part of it is underground, and that’s the type of facility for sure. There’s surface mining. There’s underground mining,” said Lauren Fraley, a community relations coordinator for the Environmental Protection Department. The mine is mostly used for limestone mining. Lane, Arcosa, issued a statement to Action News 4 in Pittsburgh, saying, “At this time, we are focused on responding to an emergency incident at the Lake Lynn, Pennsylvania facility. The safety of our employees is our number one priority. More information will be shared as appropriate.” DEP said it was responding to the situation. Both the Department of Environmental Protection’s Office of Mine Safety and the Federal Administration for Safety and Health in mines were on site. DEP officials said they would provide additional information as it became available.
