Man killed in mine accident

A coal miner is dead after an underground collapse in a southeastern Kentucky mind.

It happened Friday morning at the Bledsoe Coal Company's Abner Branch Mine in the Greasey community of Leslie County.

State officials say 29-year-old Travis Brock died after a mine roof collapse and the debris hit him.

The mine is closed while officials investigate.

This is the first mine related death of 2010.

There were four deaths last year.
