W.Va. gov: 3rd hole will be drilled in rescue

MONTCOAL, W.Va. (AP) -- Gov. Joe Manchin says crews are going to drill a third hole at a West Virginia mine in an attempt to release dangerous gases from underground.

Manchin said Wednesday that the third hole needs to be drilled before any attempt can be made to rescue four missing miners.

It's the worst U.S. mining accident in more than two decades. The explosion Monday killed 25 people.
